Hmm. Looks like a Revell (Germany) composite diecast 1:18 scale W116. They also have a 6.9 1:18 scale, which, if my memory serves me correctly, has a price of about AUD $175. (I stand to be corrected pricewise). That bonnet star gives it away.

Des has not been easy work loosing the weight it has been hard work! yet it has been very rewarding.

Des are you still driving a Mercedes if so what model(s) and do you still live in Tassie?

Cheers Slim.

Tim I have upgraded from a Mercedes to a Volvo, People from Sweden are basically Germans anyway.

Have owned a few models, 740GLE, 850 presently have a 240GL, has been my backup car for over 5 years, using it every day at the moment.







It's a bit of a running joke with my friends, that I've had it longer than any other car, has only been washed once in 5 years, I fill it up with engine oil when the light comes on, (once every 3 months) transmission fluid about once a month, and it just keeps going and going. Who cares it leaks oil? fill it up like petrol and off it goes again.....

Not bad for $1,000 motoring, I have air con, power steer, basically all you want in a luxury car.



I did used to have a Golf but that caught fire, so only have a Beetle:

Hi Des, like that old, comfy looking countryside you call home - reminds me so much of certain parts of Tassie. Nice to see well maintained and cared for Volkswagen - no, no, noooo...it's a notta beetle...it's a Kaefer supposedly spelt with an Umlaut 'a' with two horns on the letter. Anyway, it's classier looking than that Swedish carriage - mind you, must say what an underrated classic (?) they are now. Regards Styria
