That cossie of yours looks pretty nice to me. Besides, you can just display it without entering it for judging. I'm a bit over preparing cars for judging and the 500SLC is not of concours standard anyway. I still like to display it though as it's an interesting and rare car. It's not definite yet, but the only two known 500SLCs in Australia may both be on display in Canberra this year. That would be a first for Australia apart from when the two were together briefly earlier this year for a quick private photo shoot (see viewtopic.php?f=13&t=10055#p64207 ).
107023 - 350SLC: 1973, 3sp auto, icon gold, parchment MBtex (sold July 2012 after 29 years ownership)
107026 - 500SLC: 1981, 4sp auto, thistle green, green velour
124090 - 300TE: 1990, 4sp auto, arctic white, cream-beige MBtex
124090 - 300TE: 1992, 4sp auto, malachite (spruce green), black MBtex
201024 - 190E-2.0: 1985, 5sp manual, black, black MBtex
201028 - 190E-2.3 Sportline: 1990, 5sp manual, arctic white, blue leather
201028 - 190E-2.3: 1992, 4sp auto, blueblack, grey MBtex
201028 - 190E-2.3 Sportline: 1990, 4sp auto, signal red, black cloth (parts car)
201034 - 190E-2.3-16 Cosworth: 1985, 5sp manual, blueblack, black leather
YG2S8 - Mini Clubman GT: 1972, 4sp manual, blue, parchment vinyl (my first car which I still own)

yeah, I'm going. Was going to go with the Golf guys but the SL needs a nice long run and this is as good an excuse as any. No concours here either but fun to go along to. Might see if anyone has an E30 M3 they want to part with if nothing else!
