Got a new battery for her and it died. So had it charged and disconnected from the car now. Guess it would have to be recharged by the time she is ready for a walk. You learn patience when you are dealing with the older Ladies my friend . I rather take my time and do things right than hurry things and have to redo things my friend.

Recieved the air intake hoses and the brake hose pipes for the car, still no signs of the brake callipar kits. Man the part needed the most is taking the longest time to come.

No i have not seen your friends golden 500SEL but would love to see it. Could you post pictures of it in the W140 500 and 600 thread.

Turel had two W126's and no W140. A 280 SEL and a 560 SEC. The 280 i think is sold and the SEC was last seen in a garage and was for sale too if i remember right.

Thank you for the information Cyrus. I always saw the two cars in the garage. It was not a 500 SEC but a 560 SEC all along i had seen the same car before Freddie bought it, but at that time i was cash strapped. There were three 560 SEC's at that time that i knew off.

Ohh I see. But havent seen the SEC in a while now. Also, how can we forget his 170. so beautiful.

Anyways, coming back to your baby, got the wheels polished yet? I hope you can get a chrome finish on the wheels after they are buffed. Looks superb

Yes how could we forget that baby.

Nothing has been touched as i am afraid autohanger would waste more time if i ask them to have it done. Right now only the bumper has been painted since the cracks were platic wielded. When i get the car touched up in March i shall have the wheels painted silver again, am not too fond of the chrome wheels brother and as i am not changeing the colour of the car, it will not suit it.

Speedy actually, Freddy did have a W140 S320 which he picked up with the Vette and the Camaro. I think hes sold it a long time ago.
He also has a R129 SL 500, a 170V convertible, a W123 300D turbo diesel, American spec amongst other marques.

Abhi, Freddy's dark purple coupe is a 500 SEC and not a 560 SEC.

I heard the W140 was bought on behalf of someone and was in transit at his place. Thank you for the inputs bhai. Spoke to him a few months ago and he did not mention of the SL.
I always remembered the SEC as being a 560 for some reason.


Guys the brake calliper kits have finally arrived. So am looking as this week for the fitments and then the car is off for her exhaust work. I hope she is roadworthy by Valentines. She is going to be my date .
