Star Shots! - Show us your Ride

Post by AMG » Mon 05 Mar, 2007 10:49 am

Post Pictures of your car here!

Don't forget to include details such as year, colour etc.
If your car has a story, for example; how you came across it, - put it in here with the pictures. It's always nice to read someone else's experiences.

If you've done any modifications / improvments, Here's the place to show them off - Post lots of pics!

It's not a bad idea to revisit your post every now and then, to make sure your pictures are still up. We'd also like to encourage those who do post a Project car, and supply us with updates, to come back to your original post and edit it, rather than make a new post each time, by replying. It will help keep all your pictures and progress in one spot!

It also makes your post MUCH easier to view.

If you're unsure on how to upload pictures, go to the posting tutorial on the main board and try the test posting page, Don't forget to sign yourself up for a free account on imageshack / photobucket etc.. if you haven't already.

Show us ya Pics! :)

Make those Stars Shine!

The 10 seat Coach version is super rare, only 962 made of which most have gone, i know of only four. The one the Classic center owns went for 60000 Deutschemarks....... you do the maths

Hi there from anew member.

I drive a 1969 Unimog 404. It came direct from the Swiss army along with 3 others. Between my friends and myself we have 9 mogs, consisting of a 416 Softtop, A 416 Doka, a U1700 (rolling chassis) and 6 404's. Unfortunatly the U1700 and a couple of 404's have to go now as we have too many trucks/projects :?

Its going to get a bit of work done soon, so will post up about the progress.

Here are the 404's playing in my back yard!
Image

Not long after I got the Mog we got ourselves a dog. A german Shepherd, i wanted to call her 'Unidog' but the wife put her foot down, so we settled on Mercedes!

The Unidog well ok Mercedes

I am located out at Kenthurst (NSW) and the rest of us are in sydney as well. Most of the trucks live out myway, so you could say I am in Mog heaven ;)

My 404 is going through a bit of a change right now. The truck itself has been 'bobbed' a little bit and the original Swiss Tray has been replaced with a shortened German 'Dropside' tray. It may get a new Tranny and axles under it at some stage and funds permitting, but thats a long way off and Its got a fair way to go till its finished (or I am happy with it), but its great fun and easy to work on - certainly gets a few looks when I drive it into work. The hardest decision I am having is what color to paint it when the time comes. :?

You drive it into work???? HAHAHAAAAAAA freakin' awesome.

That's Brilliant.

I'd love to drive a mog to work, but a) I don't own one (yet); and b) it wouldn't fit in the underground parking at work.

Imagine mogging along the ED in the mornings in peak hour traffic. hahaa everyone would be afraid to get close.

Just what I need. :lol:

Off the top of my head I dont know (will measure it tonight), but from memory the local woolies is a Max height of 2.1m and it gets under that. If that fails you can fold down the windscreen and its about 18" lower ;) but you need to duck lol. My garage is a standard garage height and it fits in throught the roller doors
