If one has nothing to copy then one has nothing to paste.

DB? That you?

(Sure sounds like him!)

RE: 1955 300sl gullwing coupe

I know who you mean now,different IP means he is using a PC at school or at the therapists.
I only know one guy(here in my home city) who owns a Gullwing (David Bowden) and I have Freind who is great mates with a chap named Wolfe Grod, who restores Gullwings for a living ( and who got a second at this years pebble beach with his 380K ) so if this young chap wants to post the chassis number of his DAD'S gullwing I will start to beleive him ,because a 2 minute call to Wolfe at his work shop ( Sleeping Beuties,Salisbury,Qld.)will confirm if he's telliing the truth.so how about it? .
Just a matter of interest,Wolfe has direct access to the Archives at the German classic center because he restores cars for Daimler Chrysler
on a regular basis.One of the latest being Eva Perons 300 Convert.

I doubt it's DB. The grammar is too good.

RE: 1955 300sl gullwing coupe

Being the owner or a 300sl gull wing, a Ferrari California and an Enzo, I would like to step up and defend our little friend. To prove I’m not a liar, I have added a pic of my house with my 3 cars and wife in front.

On a serious note, look what i found while looking for pics...
