Hello - Mercedes 500SE

Hi there, I'm Richie from Ayrshire in Scotland. I'm an engineer and in my spare time I play with my smallish collection of classic cars. Lately been into minis, but back in june I went for something totally different, a 1986 500SE. Interesting that the engine is 5 times bigger than most of the minis too!

I bought the car from a friend who was moving overseas, he'd had it a number of years having bought it from his landlord, however it has been off the road for about a year because it was simply too expensive to run and maintain as a daily driver.

I've done a bit of work on it already, and it's almost ready for it's mot. The bodywork has been touched up (by phil who i got it from) and whilst this has prevented any serious corrosion, it could do with a few wee bits being resprayed to get it back to being immaculate.

Electrically everything in it works spot on too!

It really is a great old car! I'll try to post some pictures later on when I get a chance.
