It was a sight to behold on June 10 when 24 classic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gull Wings and 14 300 SL Roadsters gathered at Fort Point Park overlooking the famed Golden Gate Bridge.

The occasion was the 50th anniversary of the Gull Wing Group, founded in 1961 by like-minded Gull Wing owners to celebrate one of the most iconic sports cars ever built.
