Default My first gift to myself for the new year's eve! A Mercedes W126..

finally after a long search for the w140 i ended up buying a w 126,s280.was a very tough day for me today but it is worth.for now enjoy two pictures,all other detailed report will come in by tomorrow & please don't ask me how much i bought it for as i am tired of answering this since noon & also getting negative feed back by family & non enthusiast friends.search for w140 is still on.

Looks good. You need to get as much info on the stromberg carbs thatthis car has. I believe they are tricky to tune

thanks ajmat & sultan. I surely will keep an eye on the carbs.
I am at work & the car is at home but the keys are in my pocket,
just cant stop singing pocket mein rocket hai,
lot of pictures are going to come up tomorrow.
need to get up early tomorrow & give the interioqs a good clean wash.
Life can be so focussed at times

Congratulations on your new buy and wish you all the luck in the new year. 33k miles is fairly new for this car. I see one everyday, MAS XXXX parked outside a south mumbai hospital parked out there braving all the heat and rain.
