Re: Auto Brunch Event - St Ives

I just love that EH Holden.
One of my mates is spending $40,000 to have a nut and bolt back to bare metal restoration done on one.

Re: Mercedes from AMG

I will just be happy with my W210, without the air suspension, despite the fact that the W211 would eat it for breakfast, when it comes to overall performance.

Re: Wheel required

Whatever the case, just make sure that the wheels fitted have the correct offset measurement for the suspension.
With zero offset steering, as with most modern cars, it is essential that kingpin...

Re: Some fancy 116 wheels

In terms of appearance, my preference for W116's has always been colour coded steel hub caps, with the Mercedes star in the centre.

In terms of shoes, Imelda Marcos always led the way. :)

For that reason,

Re: used car trade in values

How about a 10 year old Holden V8 in average condition?

How about any 10 year old hybrid car in above average condition, that needs a new battery?

Not too surprising, to my way of thinking.

My first Holden was one of those horrid 4 Cylinder 1750 Toranas, (Vauxhall Viva derived), with the Bedford light truck engine !
I wouldn't mind if I...

it would be essential that they are PROPERLY prepared and finished with a good quality protective clear lacquer, to keep them that way.

The only reason why I have low profile tires and monoblocks on the 55
is because they are original equipment for the car.

I guess that Mercedes is supposed to know better than I,
