Ok....this is for dedicated W126 Nutters, particulary W126 SEC nutters (like me)!

Apologies if this has been posted before. But it's the first time I have seen it.

Cheers,
W126 Nutter
PS This is mainly about the 560SEC. However, for us 380SEC owners, we can still feel the breeze with all windows down!
After all ...a V8 is still a V8 :dance:
