New to this Forum and in many ways 'almost' back to Mercedes after many years away (had 4 merc's in the past, the best being the W124 E300D)
Well, what can i say?....i'm a 47 yr old certified Petrolhead...i go through cars at a rapid rate, Had many nice motors over the years, to many to list here and i dare say some of the 'other' teutonic brands may offend! (M3/M5 ahem!!!)
Love V8's, had numerous Yank motors/Pick-ups, notably a cool '69 Camaro
Currently waking up the neighbours with a modified Holden Monaro (Pontiac GTO)... Here is a pic' to brighten up the post..

Things have changed a little of late (finacially ££££ ) and some of the toys have to go!
Tuned into the fact that i can get an awful lot of V8 Mercedes for very little money, namely the previous model CL500, having done lots of research, i have come to the conclusion that yes they are beautiful but they are cheap as chips for a reason!!!
Then i got looking at the rather dull looking W140 CL500 Coupe, then quickly realised this is the kind of Mercedes that i so loved back in the day .... phenomenal build with the great M119 engine..plus with a nice set of wheels and maybe a little lowering of the suspension it transforms the car (imo) into a svelte looking piece of quality machinery.....and for no money at all!!
So, looking to purchase a 1997-on W140 CL500 or 420, preferably in Black but will consider others, history vital, mileage not so....almost excited about the prospect of owning this behemoth
