Talking Re: Vintage & Classic Mercedes Benz Cars in India

A classic video on the history of Mercedes Benz.

Its a class apart and captures the evolution of the automobile industry.

Mods : Kindly move this to the appropriate thread if this is not the right place.

Word of advice: Crank the volume and feel the goosebumps by the end of the video.

This is a R107 450 SL with a Pagoda body, one of its kind in the world. Since this is important, being one of its kind, the price is justified

Everyday I get lots of mails, informing me about winning lotteries conducted by Coca Cola, BMW, BlackBerry, etc. and I delete. But someone must be falling for these scams, and that is why they don't stop. In anyone brave enough to admit having fallen for a car ad scam?

Can't remember if I ever posted this on here. Is a photo of my 1983 380SEC. Work and travel have meant that I haven't quite finished the restoration of this car. It's more than halfway done but should've probably been in regular use by now. Unfortunately, it'll mean I probably end up putting it on the market for sale soon, given how work and travel schedules look in the near future. D a m n.

Still has the original palomino interiors and I was lucky to have bought the car with original AMG Penta alloys and the AMG bodykit. This particular photograph has the side cladding removed. For a car of that vintage, handles exceptionally well and needless to say, the 3.8 litre V8 gets it moving in quite a hurry.

Wow. That is quite a car!

I guess I might as well get in line just in case you ever want to sell it.
