June 8, 2013 – Montvale, New Jersey.

Over 100 classic Mercedes-Benz owners made the trek to their favorite marque’s U.S. corporate headquarters for the 50th annual “June Jamboree” car show, sponsored by the Northern New Jersey chapter Mercedes Club .

Also reaching a 50th anniversary milestone was the SL “113 body” two-seater design, debuting as a 1963 model and running through the end of 1971.

Nicknamed “pagoda” style SLs because of the unique shape of their removable hardtops, over one dozen pagoda SLs were on display – grouped together as a tribute to the lasting appeal these models have maintained.
