Default Re: World's Greatest Cars

In my book "journalists" research their story, this muppet claims

"everything in the car is hydro pneumatic, suspension, door locks, windows"

"This car is the grand daddy of modern day AMG S63's" What about the 6.3...

Then I turned it off...

Good points you have mentioned Ant and I agree.

Morley's video was to short.

6.9 is a nice looking car has been restored.

David Morley was also to work on the Ch.9 'The Car Show' the show was shown on Ch.9 years ago the show was hosted by Glenn Ridge.

I do remember entering a competiton the show was running to win a pair of Seregenti driving glasses.

And I won a pair of sunnies and the sunnies were fantastic until I lost them!

Pretty flaccid sort of test and summary - seems a shame to have wasted time to produce the video. He got the suspension bit right, the rest.....just forget it. Regards Styria
