Can't it go fast enough to get dirty?! :laughing8:

All being well, it will be the first public showing in Oz of the two 500SLCs known to exist here. To get two of these rare cars together anywhere in the world is special, but to do that in Oz will be extra special. These are two of the three 107026 (5 litre SLC rally homologation) models known to exist in Oz. The third car is a 450SLC 5.0 in Melbourne which we would have liked to display at the event, but unfortunately its owner will not be in Oz at that time. These two 500SLCs have been together briefly just once before for a quick photo session. Those photos can be seen at viewtopic.php?f=13&t=10055#p64207

John, I can't speak for Shane's car, but my 500SLC won't be anywhere near as clean as that 123 in your photo. It has been entered in too many rallies this year to try and keep it clean underneath. The weekend after the German Autofest it will be out on yet another two day rally. Whilst I like a clean car, I'm enjoying driving this one in these rallies even more.

was thinking of spoiling the party with something that goes around corners properly....

I won't be entering this year, as I'm currently overseas.

With no real guarantee I'll be home in time, and a cracked exhaust manifold to fix on the coz I'm pretty disappointed, especially as I was planning to bring a few cars.

I'm sure you'll all have a great time.

GUYS,

Take LOTS of pictures of the cars - as many as possible - and send them to me. I will be doing a concours album for the forum, so it's really important you get as many pictures of as many cars from as many angles as you can.

Oh, and some pics with people enjoying themselves too...

So i miss out again.

Nice Work John.

But I think we both knew nothing would touch the 240D for immaculate originality. It's an incredible find.

Surprised about the 3.4 though...... I guess a few Kings of Chrome didn't show? :dance: :occasion5: :sunny: :blob7: :blob6: :blob5: :blob4: :blob3: :blob2: hahahahahaaa

There was some seriously nice machinery at the Autofest. A very nice R129 and a couple of drool inducing W124 coupes. Couldn't understand why John declined my offer of swapping my 260E for his AMG W124. Oh well maybe I'll have better luck with my RHD CLK GTR...... :liar:

I have heaps of photos on my camera (or at least I hope I do) but haven't had time to look at them yet. You see, I was a judge and didn't actually get time to take any photos (or actually look at any cars apart from MBs I was judging, or talk much to friends including some from this forum, or have lunch, or go for a ...) so I asked my kids to photograph every MB there as well as whetever else they wanted to (I am informed there are lots of Porsche photos). We stayed after the concours to enjoy dinner with the locals and others from Sydney and Melbourne who were staying an extra night before heading off to arrive back home in Sydney at 11.30pm last night.

As for what I saw of the event, it was great. Perfect weather and well presented cars (even if there were a few too many chrome wheel arch moulds for my liking). John's 300CE 3.4 AMG was stunning as always and the 240D was a well preserved time warp. The outright winning 190SL (which had driven from Melbourne) is just about perfect as were a couple of previous winners that weren't entered for judging this time. It was nice to see a rare 300SL roadster there (a W198 not a 107) and from memory there were at least five LHD MBs, three of which (a 108, 113 and John's 124) were manuals. Shane ("Fotografa") and I both had our LHD 500SLCs there (on display, not for judging) making it the first public showing in Oz for the only two of these known to exist here (out of just 1133 manufactured not including the 1636 manufactured of the similar 450SLC5.0 and an estimated few hundred in total of the 107026 still remaining).

We stayed in Canberra on Saturday night which meant we were able to attend the pre-concours dinner hosted by the ACT MB club. As was the case last year, the dinner was great with good food and good company. Thanks also to the club for organising "child friendly" food and entertainment for the kids. All this plus the variety of German marques and Floriade makes this weekend a concours my wife and kids enjoy attending.

Anyway, better get busy checking out these photos and posting some on the forum. How many does everyone want to see?

Greg - is the 450SLC 5.0 blue by any chance?
Dad remembers servicing a 450SLC in Sydney when new. It would wheel spin through the first 3 gears with ease. That owners next door neighbor bought a silver 450SLC (keeping up with the jones') it was a slug, as was every other 450SLC dad worked on by comparison.
Just wondering if that 450 might have been something special.

Brad,

A pity you couldn't make it to Canberra. It would have been good to see your black 220S again.

The only 107026 (5 litre SLCs) we know of in Australia are Maurice's 450SLC 5.0 (red) in Melbourne and Shane's (black) 500SLC and my (thistle green) 500SLC both in Sydney. To the best of our knowledge most (and very likely all) were LHD. As to the regular 450SLC, the pre-emission controlled versions (up to late 1976) went fairly well whereas those that came later with ADR27a compliance suffered a performance loss.

The German Autofest and MBCACT concours photos are coming. My kids snapped over 200 of them and late last night I started resizing them for the forum. I'll see if I can get them finished and up on the forum tonight.

John,

We won't even mention it again if you post up some more photos!

Just looking at the photo you posted with the LHD pagoda, reminded me of our incorrect count of LHD cars. On the day we initially thought of about 4. Last night I posted that there were at least 5. I can now think of 6. Your AMG, the 300SL, the W113, the W108 and the two 500SLCs. I wonder if we have ever had that many at a MB concours before?

Wow, that single pic has got me excited. Maybe I should organise some time off to attend next year's event in my W114, or maybe even the 190 (if it's ready).
Hmmmm, food for thought. :think:
Got the Benz disease....and I like it!!!

Some other marques and overall views of the event. Thanks to my two sons for snapping all these photos. The two white Porsches were their favourites.
