The love affair continues....

Post by inallerwelt » Tue 05 Dec, 2017 9:51 pm

Great to be here with you all.

I've been a self confessed `Benz Tragic' from since I was a teenager. From collecting Matchbox cars to doing work experience in high school at Mercedes Benz of Sydney to finally owning 2 W126's in my mid 20's, I've always had a soft spot for the greatest motor vehicle on the road.

Both these were Hong Kong imports that I owned in the late 90's. The green W126 was a 280SE while the blue was a 380SEL.

Just this week I picked this baby up:

It's a 2001 S430 with a mere 70k's. It looks & runs like new.

I'm really keen to get out there & meet other like minded Benz owners in the South West area of Sydney.

Look forward to chatting with you all in the future.

Hi Eric,
welcome here! Owning two W126 in your 20s ... not too bad! Also the 430 is a fantastic motor, I had it for 200,000kms. Enjoy the ride!

Regards
Thomas
