Motoring Investments 
The Mercedes Pagoda Specialists



We wrote the book.

Motoring Investments performs restorations and service on classics, collectors, and vintage cars. Our specialty is in vintage Mercedes with a particular interest in the SL range produced from 1955 through 1989. We have a strong focus on the Mercedes Benz Pagoda, chassis prefix “W113” — also known as the 230SL, 250SL and 280SL. We regularly conduct business with worldwide clients; our main hub of operations is located in San Diego, Ca.

Our team has a collective knowledge of classic cars that make other high-level servicing and restoration projects outside of the Mercedes Benz SL line possible. Please inquire to discuss the subjects in question.

We offer showroom sales at our San Diego location where we feature specialty luxury vehicles from the warm, dry Southwestern United States. From the date of our founding in 1985 our passion for the automotive industry has been unmatched, as we have handled all varieties of classic vehicles since the inception of Motoring Investments. Should you choose to work with us, we guarantee to provide the same passion and expertise that we have gained a reputation for in the automotive landscape.

We encourage you to browse past projects and restorations in our Portfolio section for more on our work. The portfolio is a collection of records and images from the more modern, well-documented restorations from start to finish. All restoration projects are meticulously documented for the sake of transparency and communicated to our clients.

Please note, our old website is being maintained as a historical resource and automotive reference center. There are thousands of pages to explore and tens of thousands of images. Just click on “OUR OLD SITE” at the top right of your screen.
