26th Anniversary Fallbrook Vintage Car Show Poster
“Historic Fill-Wing & Champion Bi-Plane” by Ken Eberts
This years’ poster artwork by Ken Eberts features one of the most sought after European sports cars of the 1950’s, the German-built Mercedes 300 SL coupe, with its stylish gull-wing doors, parked at the Fallbrook Air Park.
The 300 SL Gull-Wing Mercedes was one of the most distinguished sports cars of the 1950’s and gave Mercedes their major success in recognition of high performance, high priced, sports cars.
The bi-plane is a “one-of-a-kind” 1959 Mong Race airplane modified and raced by Tom Aberle of Fallbrook. The bi-plane was raved in the first (1964) Reno Air Race and won 3 times National in the 60’s and 2 times National in the late 80’s. The Aberles have managed the Fallbrook Air Park for 23 years.
