I'm currently working in the UAE and have had the good luck to own, drive and share some great and lovely cars- both inside and outside Pakistan.

The sad part is that a number of valuable and historic cars were taken out of Pakistan from 1966 onwards- there being no law to stop their export. I have myself seen a Mercedes K type being exported out in 1970 from Rawalpindi, a Bentley 4 1/2 litre from Nowshera, the Nawab of Bahawalpurs 540 K Mercedes with Barker body ( recently on e bay ) , 300 SL Gullwing Mercedes, the Mir of Khairpur RR Phantom II by Hooper... the list goes on and on. All these cars sadly lost.

Just posting some pictures of cars I have been lucky to own.
Good grief. I'm totally bowled over by your collection.
It's a pleasure to have you on Team-Bhp, Sir.

Welcome aboard Alvis, nice collection you had there. Start a thread in the Vintage and Classic section about the "vintage and classic" car scene in Pakistan. Enjoy your stay here

a Mercedes 600 SEL from 1992.
I am not much into vintage cars, but this totally caught my attention. The 600 SEL is probably one of the best Mercedes sedans ever made! I love the W140, with that wild engine, only a true connoiseur could own it today. Any pictures? How are the electronics treating you ?

Welcome to Team-BHP!

Pics of the 560 Coupe. Gem of an engine and one of Mercs great driver cars.

MUch simpler electronics than the later S 600 series, main reason I opted for the 92 was the reasonably reliable electronics. Great car and probably the finest 4 door speedster.

What a beauty Sir!! And I see you gave it the beans too. I'm sure it must be poised even at 240 clicks.

Thanks for the pics.
