W140 S500 V8 - Just been brought back to life!!!

I think I will enter my 1995 S500 SWB.. - Johannesburg, South Africa -

It may not look as great as some of the other more "done up" or modded Benz's.. But it has come a long way.

From almost being sent to the scrapyard or stripped for parts and sold in pieces like so many other Benz's in similar condition..

To getting a good home with a dedicated new owner that took the time, money and effort to bring it back to life. Today its proud to say, "I am a Mercedes S500, V8 W140!" 281 000km on the odo, but still strong as a battle tank!

Here is its story: (Exclusive restoration thread on Benzworld.)

Here's my darling, a 220d from -71, the odometer has probably gone all the way around twice since new, but she still starts every single day =)

Ok.. here is my humle adition to this thread: My 280C.

C123 280C 1977. Sold new in Norway. Owned by a MD from 1977 to somethime in the 80's, when the the former owner bought it. Then I bought it in 2007, when the owner got his license invoked because of failing health due to high age (pity). But used and maintained well during it's years. The car is good, all works, good driver, don't use oil. Some rust unfortunately. But I plan to get it restored some time in the not so distant future.

Yes indeed, it is an 40th Anniversary Edition Model SL500.The original
300SL roadster succeeded the famous 300SL "Gullwing" coupe in 1957 and set the
precedent that the company's performance flagship should be a roadster. The paint color is called "Crimson Metallic",it reminds me of a Matchbox car :>)
