For those of you that have never been to Heinz's Big Car Day before, you have to do it! To be driven around in any of these fine large machines is an absolute pleasure!

Unfortunately my W112 300SE LWB will not be available, but I will be bringing something along with a big engine, but no star on the front... :)

I can't post larger than 480pix in threads anymore so this'll have to be the only sample you guys get:

This event ranks among one of my MB highlights: to be offered my first opportunity to drive a 600, a 300 Adanaur and a 220 Roundie Hydrak.
It's certainly a rare event to see four 600s at the same time - and one of them a pullman (6-door).
It was a great day for MB enthusiasts.

For the short time I was able to attend this was a FANTASTIC event.

The drive in David's white 450SEL 6.9 was awesome.

These cars are absolute luxury rockets.

Thanks for taking the pics Chris.
