An Introduction


Yes, yet another introduction, I have been looking for an enthusiastic website on Mercedes-Benz and seem to have found it here.

I currently constantly drive/own two Mercedes-Benz, my father's main car, a CL63 AMG, and the 560SEC he has given me (as a first car). I am quite young and as such get time driving both vehicles, although the 560SEC is currently in restoration.

Although I have always had an interest in cars, I can feel that interest begin to take off, and am here to learn before, hopefully, begging to contribute.

While the CL63 is a fantastically brilliant car, there isn't much of a story behind it. On the other hand, the 560SEC is truly a stunning example- it was previously owned by Sheikh Zayed, Ruler and Founder of the United Arab Emirates, who had it custom built with a special paint job/interior color (unfortunately the dealership poured oil on the seats meaning they had to be replaced to the standard ones since). Papers show the car to have been sold for AED700,000 new, or $190,579 (1986 Dollars), which as I am sure you will agree, is crazily expensive for a 560SEC. The icing on the cake is that the car was gifted to my father in 1988 from Sh. Zayed, so a great reminder of a great time for him in the UAE. Today, after it being laid up for some 7 years, it is being restored for me to drive it, hopefully keeping it in good condition for another 20 years.

Anyways, thought I'd introduce myself and my Mercedes-Benz story

Interesting story, welcome to Benzworld.
