That's super cool! Turn up in that in a pair of flares, polyester shirt and cuban heels and heads would turn!

Interesting on my way home from a walk with the dog driving the 300SE stopped at an intersection a yellow coloured W116 drove past in the opposite direction.

Could not get a close look at the badge on the boot!

The 350SE for sale did you notice the fire extinguisher in the boot is that really a safe spot?!

The silver 300SE with the low kms the car has velour trim clearly the car is an import.

Not sure what the seller means by this statement?

"Since last road worthy chattel has completed 50,000km/h".

What is the chattel?

I am wary if a Mercedes that is advertised cheaply.

Manual 300D sure is rare to see in Australia but the car has 450,000kms on the clock.

That is funny the name of the drivers on that blue Ford!

Wonder if that was Putin's limo to the G20?

Trump was in the 'Beast', Mal & Lucy hitched a ride as well.

Mal also hitched a ride on Macron's plane one does travel in style?!

Am I allowed to rubbish the car ? Surely, one would have to have the hides of an elephant and a Rhino put together to advertise the car. I would be too ashamed to not only show the car, but to also show the surrounds of the property.

Mind you, there is a dismantling mob in Melbourne somewhere that advertise "6.9 parts from $1.00". I struck the worst of human kind when I telephoned them about a Starter Motor. " Do you have one, what price" ? The reply "to you $300.00" plus $50.00 delivery to Sydney. "Okay, I'll take it, can I pay you now with Paypal" ? "Ah, we've got to take it out first, we'll do it this afternoon and check it out. The boss is out to lunch but we'll get back to you in the avo".

Needless to say, I didn't hear from them - after a couple more reminder calls from me. The boss was always doing something - busy boy. Anyway, it was all bull####, because when I rang about a fortnight later, the price had risen to $1500.00 - that's a second hand starter motor. I told the guy that he was a bulls...artist and to go away and plait his sh.. ! That was well received. So maybe this beautiful car, adorned with its flowers, may well be a bargain after all. Pity the poor sod that buys it. Regards Styria

The car has already been sold, and as a consequence, no interior pictures are available. Well yes, it would seem that he has done exceptionally well, and the car looks in nice condition. For whatever reason, some of the trim strips are missing, and this seller has had no more success in getting a perfect bonnet fit - I am talking about lining up with the back section of the front guards - same problem as I have. I suspect that the fault may well lie with the sealing rubber at the back of the bonnet. On my car(s), the rubber is rock hard and I am not game to remove it as no ready replacement is available. Regards Styria
