Re: Always a moving Target

Re: Patrick's W220 S430

Great posts and fantastic contributions from you all. You just have to love that "Sand" colour with the light and airy upholstery. It makes such a pleasant change from dark grey and/or black. I've...

Re: Mpg Hybrid

Sean, these are quite remarkable figures. I mean, on that basis, there is almost very little call for fully electric vehicles, is there ? I daresay that manufacturers will even be able to improve on...

Re: Volkswagen Van Hoarder...

It is really amazing how practical some of the versions or models are. I have only ever driven one fifty plus years ago, and I was certainly quite comfortable behind the wheel. Very comfortable...

Re: MBCCC All German Day

What was my favourite car - don't know as there were so many to choose from. The Porsche 550 race car stood out (probably replica) and I have seen it at the Concours in Sydney. The crème 220S...

Re: Shelf life of coolant

I'll go with BHW - the stuff should be as good as new for a long time. Stuff already in the system should be changed on a bi annual basis - I think. Regards Styria

Re: Car of the week

Re: Car of the week

Yes, the 280S is hard to fault. There really is a strong following for the Ch. 108 and Ch.109 models by aficionados that wouldn't even look at a Ch. 116 car sideways. I know most people prefer the...

Re: Car of the week

These are interesting figures. The 380SEC - great value for money but you've got to ask yourself why the 450SEL should have fetched that much more money. I have already commented on the upholstery,...

Re: Car of the week

Hi Patrick and Michel, obviously I am in agreement with both of you. I do think that the engine bay really needed a bit more than just a clean and tidy up. Unfortunately the engine bay demonstrates...

Re: For Sale -- Chrome Wheels suit W116

Re: Some fancy 116 wheels

That sounds interesting - not that I need to buy any shoes. What sort of price range are they ? I am surprised to see Florsheim producing their shoes in Portugal. Unfortunately, Australia is just so...

Re: Some fancy 116 wheels

Hi Patrick....and I am with you. For me it is, well it was, Karandonis. Another that comes to mind is Swiss made Aquila. Don't worry about Windsor Smith, Florsheim and (Clarks) - thems for the...

Under Bonnet Temperatures

We all are familiar with the fact that under bonnet temperatures can reach quite high levels. Come to think of, so do outside bonnet temperatures to the extent that one can hardly touch the bonnet to...

Re: 1954 Traction Avant Light 15

Hi Bryce, that car is in quite stunning condition - certainly one of the best Tractions I have ever seen. It reminds me a little of a Mercedes 170, but I am quite sure that it would be a much better...
