In search of a ride that he can drive every day for the rest of his life, Byron Bowers’ rents a silver 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL through DriveShare, and he is instantly smitten. “It’s like the smoothest thing I’ve ever touched,” he says, “that I can talk about on camera.”
The German convertible “embodies class and style,” Bowers says. “It’s like a hammerhead and a great white made shark love and made a little shark baby.” (We’re fairly certain that is a compliment.) Bowers says the 280SL is perfect for Beverly Hills and claims, “You look pretty in this car, even if you’re not pretty. It’s like putting on makeup.”
