Mark,maybe a new girlfriend might be the answer ? Oops, maybe I shouldn't have said that. On a more serious note,how do you cope with moving all the cars ? It's got to be a humongous task likely to test the best of men. Are you actually making any progress on any of the 6.9s or has it just been getting the better of you ? Luckily champ, you've got time on your side. Regards. Styria

Started moving a few the other day. Actually the cars are the easy bit! It's all the stuff that goes with them, plus my oldish furniture that is a PITA... Oh well a clean out never goes astray! I swear this is the last time I move all this crap (oh didn't I say that last time)!!!

PS yeah I think it's making me a bit mental(er)!

Got the 560 going the other day which was exciting! One more 6.9 down, but at least I'm sticking to my grand plan...

In light of the lack of activity here I'll post a brief update...

The move went as well as could be expected and after settling in it's worked out better than I thought. After more analysis of the fleet I'm looking at keeping 5 cars so the rest have to go after taking what I need. Unfortunately it can take a long time to sell some cars so the process is pretty slow!

So I'll be keeping:
2 x 6.9s
2 x 560s
Buick.

I'm selling a crashed 500SEL and a crashed 560SEL very soon so I'll post links when the ads come on-line.

Oh I don't think Fakebook will ever replace forums! The info here is far too good (no thanks to Photobucket )!

Once I've fully recovered from this flu I might be able to get back to my projects... I don't think I've had the flu as an adult before and man it was bad!

Next on the agenda is to sell a couple of parts cars, before I get the 560 and Red Bull back on the road. I'm hoping to have the 560 ready for summer.

Well, at least you seem to have turned into a positive direction. You're lucky with the 6.9s, as they have really come up in value. Regards Styria

N.B. Photobucket - an absolutely horrible disaster.What I intend to do is to copy and paste many of the pictures used in illustrating my work from my Picture files and simply post them under the various threads without commentary. At least, the pictures will feature again in due course.
