It's on again, the annual MBCCWA Display Day, this year at Freo. It's on in conjunction with the 109th Fremantle Festival. Start's 8.30am through to 4pm.
http://www.weekendnotes.com/fremantle-festival/

Rumoured to be 50 cars attending, I'll be taking a clients W210 AMG E55 he needs to sell as he is relocating back to Germany.

Hope to catch up with a few WA Ozbenzers there.

Giles

Giles,
I could not see even one W123 amongst the cars photographed.

Was that series represented?

Not today. There are a number in the club, but their owners bought alternate models.

The best event I have have been to with the club. Lots of you blooded guts and girls who are enthusiasts rather than just drivers and owners.

If you thought the MBCCWA wasn't for you because it's just tea and scones, time to think again. Next event is a social affair, some twin engined go cart racing at Coburn. 3 x 6 lap races and winner takes home a trophy. I'll post more on the event if you like to come and meet a few of us.

Giles

Here is a photo of an Ex WA Premier's trio of W113's. He was rumoured to collect stamps at some stage, but moved on to W113's.

Hi Kim,

Sounds like your house and garage are moving along.

There was a club member yesterday on the hunt for a deep dish lip for his AMG BBS rims on his W140. Any idea if they exist? These are his rears at present and they don't fill the guard.

Grant was there with his Show stopping Beast. Always gets plenty of attention from both young and old alike.

Hi Giles- I don't like that style BBS rim on his W140
Tell him i have sets of the AMG Monoblocks 18 x 8" et31 front & 9' et35 rear off the AMG E55 that might bolt up and would look better then those rims

He likes his rims, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

The W140 needs some extra rear width the fill the rear guards. I had the E55 parked next to his W140 and he preferred his rims.

I will make mention to him though, if you let me know your asking price I'll pass on the info.
