What's your dream 113?

A bit light on posts over here on the 113 board. So I thought I'd try getting some discussion.

What's your dream 113 combination?

I'll start with mine. I would love a 280SL with a 5 speed manual transmission. Light Ivory outside and red leather inside. Power steering and A/C. It would probably have whitewall tyres and chrome wheel arch mouldings too.

...I can dream [:)] ... meanwhile I live with my white 280SL auto with a black interior. I do however have P/S & A/C, so life isn't all that bad...

hmmmm, dream on eh?

I think 280Sl in silver with red leather would do it for me. five speed certainly sounds good though but I would settle for an automatic just to apease the missus'[;)].

Then again, a white 280 with black interior would do just fine also!!

My favourite R113...

Color. Silver (but gray metalic is also nice)
Interior: Red with headrests
Engine: 280
Gearbox: 5sp manual
Wheels: "barock wheels" (or "bundt-cake") with white-wall tires (yes I konw they were not sold until the 70´s but I still think they look better than original hub-caps).

Greg - Can we catch up sometime...

Hey Greg,
Can we catch up sometime? My wife wants to eventually get a 300GD - (yes I know it won't be easy to find) and I see you have one now - I'd like to show her what it is like in real life one day if possible.

I'll show you mine if you show me yours!

Sure thing, won't be here until January/Februray.

I guess my dream of a 280SL is on hold! Oh well!

I might have a group of G owners at my house, if I do I will let you know.
