Car enthusiast purchases it, has it shipped to Crookston before driving it to Canada.

Outside Anderson Beverages Friday morning, Brian Anderson could be seen checking out a 1972 Mercedes 450 SLC that a fellow classic car enthusiast in Canada purchased from Carol Burnett in California.

Anderson, who is friends with the buyer through the Crookston Classic Cruisers annual Run to the Park and other car shows, helped arrange for the vehicle to be delivered to Crookston, where the buyer arrived this morning to drive the Mercedes back to Canada.

The trunk contains literature detailing the comedian and actress’ career. 

Burnett, 79, has been selling some of her fleet of vehicles, Anderson said.
