1958 Harley Davidson Servi-car purchased in 1964 when Boomershine Service Center at 390 Spring Street in downtown Atlanta was one of the nation's largest GM dedicated service facilities.
 
It was originally equipped with a front hitch that attached to the steel bumpers that all cars were equipped with at that time. The motorcycle rider would ride the Servi-car to the customer home or office, attach the Servicar to the customer's car and bring both back to the service Center for a lubrication or repairs needed. When the work was completed the customer's car would be returned with Serv-icar attached and our motorcycle rider would disconnect the Servi-car and return. The service was provided at no charged for over ten years and the only driver of the Servi-Car for Boomershine was Mr. Sonny Whiting, a long time employee of Boomershine.
 
This Servi-car was  stored for over 30 years where it fell into disrepair. A complete historically accurate restoration was performed by Hartford Motorcycles and was a gift from the family to Walter Boomershine for he and Mrs. Boomershine's 50th wedding anniversary in 2000.

Early Registrants

This 1965 220Sb is owned by me, Alex Tibcken.  I started working on the car at age fourteen. It was an abandoned restoration, a bare shell, with many parts missing. The restoration took about 14 months. In the past four years the car has been to many shows across the eastern United States.  The seven thousand plus miles I have personally driven since the restoration was completed covers shows as far south as Macon, GA, as far north as Montvale, NJ, and as far west as Indianapolis, IN. The car is kept busy during the show season attending lots of local shows where even among   Mustangs and Bel-airs, the Benz holds its own.


1967 300SEL 109.015 chassis. This one of only 260 officially imported into the US. My car is completely original save a high quality repaint in the mid 90's.  The car was featured in the Mercedes club national magazine and is a joy to drive.
