Hello Good People!
I am a retired pilot (RAF 18 years then civil airlines captain 22 years) living in the Trossachs region of Scotland although my wife & I spend nearly 6 months every year in New Zealand.
My first Mercedes was a black 1953 170SB, my next a cashmere 1959 219 (a Germany-only 220S without the chrome). Then I had a silver year 2000 S320.
My current Mercedes is a 2007 CLS 320 CDI in Indium Grey. I consider this car to be something of a masterpiece in design for which we have to thank American designer Michael Fink. It is a quantum step up from my previous car, a black 2003 E-Class 320 CDI which gave a great deal of trouble having been built in the bad years of Mercedes.
My other cars are: In New Zealand, a 2007 Holden Calais with the 6-litre Corvette LS2 V-8 engine and, my restoration project is a Jaguar XJ 5.3C, the V-12, 2 door model this being number 603 of only 604 UK cars.
Happy motoring!
