RE: 1968 280SE Coupe

She is out of the garage and the tires are holding air. Tomorrow she will probably leave for Nevada.

Well, the plan is to keep her as original as possible. Remember, a car can be restored many times over, but it is original only once. I'll get her roadworthy first, and then go from there. Pics will definitely be posted.

Daniel,

The car is still sitting in the driveway. Can you ring up the transport company and push them for a pick-up date?

Thanks.
