I just wish it'd sell so this thread could mercifully die.

I did read, very well.
But I chose to answer one segment.
Thank you Brian

Going through my receipts I decided I didn't want to know. I could have purchased the SL and Red Terror . And that's not including what paint is about to cost.

Michel, everything is optional, and at the discretion of the owner. I very well remember our conversation, and you'd need to bear in mind that the rebuilding and fitting of the replacement pump (as covered in another thread) was subsequent to our conversation. In the light of those subsequent findings, you may well find that there is some merit in my assessment. Remember, the pumps are now at least thirty five years old, so it should come as no surprise that remedial action and repairs are always on the card - nothing lasts forever. Anyway, it's not an issue, as I could well want to fit the unit I have to Gleaming Beauty. Presently not necessary, but it's handy to have a stand-by. Regards. Styria

As I mentioned in the August GTG thread, I had a situation whereby my spray booth was rented to a panel shop operator and that agreement included the storage of the Red Terror (aka 690SEL) undercover at his premises and all covered up.

To cut a long story short, that did not eventuate.
The Red Terror ended up parked in the open but under a roof and subject to the elements.
Yesterday, I walked up to it, opened the door and attempted to start it.
It took four seconds and it fired up.
I let it idle for five to seven minutes, all the time eyeing the front and the rear to see whether it would move up.
Well, it did not... It did not need to!
It had not dropped at all all during its nine or so weeks spent alone, unstarted and looking dusty and sad.

A quick wash, then a quick clay and then I dried it up before I took it for a spin around the block (it was a big block ).

Just a great car...
Ah... and it's inside now

So you're keeping it now ? Personally, it would sadden me if you were to sell it. It really is part of you. Regards Styria

Believe me Godfather, it saddens me too.
But let's see...
I might end up keeping it, it all depends if someone is prepared to pay what I'm asking.
I have not been advertising it anyway.

Ummm - I can't precisely recall the year (although I do have dated photos in the attic) and I entered it in the MBCNSW Concours and Display day for you as I don't think you were a member at that time. We entered it as a 690SEL which caused the then MBC Committee to scratch their heads and want to argue that no such model existed. I recall telling one of them on the phone just to stand by and wait as clearly he did not know what he was talking about - and told him to wear sunglasses when it arrived.
John Skene was there and thought it a wonderful car.
Now when was that and where was it........
It must have been 2006 I think .. or maybe even 2005?
DOB syndrome defeats me.
Regards,
Brian
PS: I think it was 17/9/06 at Fox Studios. I have print film from then but need to dig into the attic to find it.

You are absolutely right Professor.
It was the first outing of the Red Terror
These are a couple of shot that I took at the time.

I must say, it was very 'tame'.

The paint code and boot badge must've had them all talking and scratching their heads!

I hope you decide to keep her and sell something else.... So our two red cars can meet one day!

It did have a few people confused.... especially by the badge.

A gentle bump to an old post.
My decision is final

The Red Terror will have to go.

I will be travelling for the next month or so and a lot more during the year.
I simply don't have the time to even care for the poor girl.

It will be put up for sale on public websites (Gumtree, etc.) by late April.

However, members here can contact me privately.
I will have it cleaned, buffed, polished, detailed and touched up in the paint where required.
You can have it with the chromies or the original 6.5" bundts or the coloured bundts.

For the price... I am open to offers..
