His name is Matthew Stretten, give me a ring and i can pass on his phone number. Nice guy, so I would be confident he would be happy to chat W107's with you....

It's Matthew Sretton who previously owned Silver Star Spares in Sydney (Kingsgrove). He is a regular in the AMSAG rallies in NSW. I haven't yet seen the car in real life but I believe it is a 450SLC (107024) fitted with a 5 litre alloy M117 (so similar to a 107026). Presumably it has the later 4 speed auto as I doubt he would have found one of the early (unique to 450SLC 5.0) alloy M117s that took the earlier 3 speed. I am unsure what other mods the car has. One day I'll have to get along to an AMSAG rally and have a closer look at it and talk to him about it.

Have a look at viewtopic.php?f=13&t=8685#p55322 in my thread relating to the Oran Park track day where I ran my 500SLC for a link to an in-car video Matthew posted of an earlier day at Oran Park. You may also be interested in
