You're very welcome, personally I had an odd fascination with the yellow roadster with green interior. I'm an oddball perhaps, but most of you knew that already.

That was truly shocking! You weren't kidding.

Here's an English version of your article. Presented with reservations.
Toss it on the pile I suppose: http://www.wreckedexotics.com/300sl/

If we get all C.S.I. on this situation you can see that the road is ribbon straight but we don't know if he was perhaps coming from the other direction and if there is a curve. Maybe he just lost it passing a car and overcorrecting. Either way it looks like he basically skipped over the ditch, stuffed the nose into the grass and bounced back to where it's resting. At least it's coveted enough to merit being saved and this isn't much damage for a Gullwing compared to some restorations we've all seen. The Classic Center carries all the bits, and they would do the work for you too if you asked (and $$$).
