Hello to all


I have just picked up a 450SLC from an auction - been waiting for several years since my last MB (a 1971 W108 280S) which departed this world (sniff)..

Prett exciting stuff, this one - did a lot of searching on on-line adds and car yards, had my eye on this one, but let it go as money = condition wasn't quite right. My wife contacted the owner to haggle (which she does so well!) but the car had been traded in.

The now previous owner gave us the contact details for the car yard, who told us it had gone to auction - in two days time....

So - up early before work, out to the auction for an inspection - started it - no bad noises or smoke - gearbox shifted well - no test drive though - no rust under rear window - a little behind front wheels under guards.

What the hell, I'll make a bid..

Now at work - all my staff gathered around, on-line bidding (even had the auctioneer voice!). And I won! In budget even!!!!
