Very nice.

The M100 engine is awesome. I owned a 300SEL 6.3 for a while and certainly lusted after the 600... The air suspension and hydraulics on the 600 can be problematical, but the cars just exude an feeling of "distinction"; somehow they are in a class by themselves. I would much rather have a 600 than a Rolls of the same era.

Congrats on the the great car!

Breathless.

Those shots just leave me breathless. I will admit that I could not bring myself to drive a modern merc because of the associated gaudiness today, which I find sad. However, that 600 almost makes one want to pull out a pipe and ponder the invasion of a foreign country. What quiet dignity.

Well done in preserving such a wonderful page of mans motoring history.
