I've been lurking here with no small measure of envy!! Corkscrew,perchance you have another MB to donate to a worthy soul?[:D] My sole 108 is lonely for a stablemate. (note complete and utter lack of pride in aforesaid groveling)

I never spoke up before because I assumed the vehicle was in Thailand and shipping would be cost-prohibitive -- DAMMIT...

Oh yeh, congrats to autobahnfahrer, have a blast getting this beauty on the road!
This is typical Thai traffic:

This is typical Thai traffic:
Hmm... bumper to bumper, just like where I live.
So does the AMG help with that somehow? [8D]

SOO SWEET!!! The best looking coupé mercedes ever made![:)]
I also really think that the 280SE Coupe was one of the best machines turned out by MB. And, Daniel will give he a good face-lift and a great new home. She would have just rusted away in my garage....6,000 miles away from Bangkok.
Was it your idea, or your wife's idea, to live in Bangkok?

(Sorry, just had to do that after seeing quite a few pics of her[:D])


Oh and the 280 SE looked beautiful.

Actually, all of the pics but one are not of my wife. Just a friend. But, the driver of the car in the first posting is my wife. But the others are not.

"How about a 2006 SL55AMG?"

I'm in!!! Where do I pick it up? I'll hook up the trailer and be there within 24 hours.

Thanks
Steve
