Default Concours d'Elegance and Show Day Pics

It just so happens Parramatta Park is 10 mins walk (or 2 mins pedalling) from my house so I thought I would have a stickybeak at the Concours d'Elegance and Show Day - met up with some familiar faces and of course, everyone was impressed with my Topklasse apparel!


Chrome was plentiful and polished on Delilah...








Birds of a feather flocking together.








Quite possibly the most pristine example of W116 glory was this white 280 - love the headlight protectors!




This white 280 was pretty good too.





Unfortunately the judges overlooked the green 450SEL parked a couple of blocks away

Now I understand all the jokes on the club forums about chrome and "Dlilah"

Looks like a great day for it too!! Delilah is definitely 'Pimpd'!

The engine bay of the 280 looks clean enough to eat off..

Oh how I missed beeing there...
I was at 38,000 feet somewhere over the Gulf when all of this was happening.

Isn't the dark green Tasmanian registered 116 pretty.....

Whose is it?
