Your favourite W126 image.

Post by KimB » Thu 01 Jun, 2017 9:28 pm

I just found this fabo W126 photo. So being a self confessed W126 Nutter, I thought I should share it with the other W126 Nutters on this Forum.

If you have a favourite W126 photo please feel free to post it here!

Cheers
Nutter

That's a very nice 280SE at Motorclassica. She's a keeper I guess.

WC Kim,

Is that all the shots you've got of the big coupes? :laughing6:

I guess you've reached the next level above "W126 Nutter" to "W126 Obsessive"! There's no known cure for it.
So enjoy! :joker:

I'm just waiting for Mercmad to post something from his racier scrapbook.

In the meantime, here is my contribution, not exactly an image, and not exactly pretty, and certainly posted before, but at least it is a W126 doing its most important job:

That SEL was imported from Japan to California by the classic import business based in LA (Original Rare Classic & Performance Automobiles) and it sold in early 2016 for over USD$100k
They arranged the pro photo-shoot (and video) to promote the sale of the car which got snapped up pretty quick.
This was not long after a couple of original AMG SEC coupes sold over there at auction for over USD$140k
Of course that sort of money would never happen over here unless it was a crappy Holden Monaro or Falcon GTHO

Not the best quality photos (it was taken on a Blackberry over 10 years ago), but still one of my favourite 126 photos. This is the day I drove my 560SEC home from buying it - it's changed little since then.

I love all those images, but the Giselle one is special as you have to look twice to see it's W126. The hand on the grill makes the shot special.
