2018 W111 Cabriolet Meeting

Post by T-Modell » Sun 13 May, 2018 9:53 pm

Hi down under,

just coming back from this year's W111/W112 Cabriolet Meeting ... this time 28 (!) cars ... one broke down. We met close to Baden Baden, drove through the Black Forrest, could park in front of the "Festspielhaus" (theatre) and had a generally good time.

One special car was there too ... spot it :laughing6: ... even an article in the Baden-Baden newspaper was in on Saturday ... Enjoy the pics!

Thomas, would the special car be the 6.3 ? Yours?
Life is a journey, with problems to solve, lessons to learn, but most of all, experiences to enjoy.

'83 W123 300D 325000km (Wife's car Josephine - sold).
'84 W123 300D replaced good OM617 912 with OM617 952 and enjoyed having good acceleration for the first time since first driving a 300D in 2002 - became engine and trans donor for 300CD Turbodiesel conversion. Now parted out.
'86 W124 300D sold (Wife's old car - sold )
'85 W123 300CD, 275 000km (Fatmobile) rebuilt turbodiesel from previous Fatmobile transplanted into 280CE (SOLD)
'99 W202 C250 Turbodiesel (my darling Wife's car - Sold)

Looks as awesome an event as ever Thomas. Did you get to have a drive in the 6.3??

One year, somehow, I’ll join you in some 1.2 diesel crappy hire car!!!
1998 W210 E240 - yawn, but like a tank
1969 Fiat 124 sport coupe - sold it...bit sad but onwards and upwards
2000 Mk4 VW Golf GTi - the german's should be ashamed - SOLD, no love lost there
1965 W111 coupe 220seb
1998 BMW M3 - interim car until the coupe is back, bit of a rocket to boot - SOLD, cant help but think I'm going to regret selling that one :think:
2003 Porsche 911 - had to see what all the fuss was about

Of course not, mine is the blue one ... I've heard that it has just recently been finished and is for sale ... if the rumours are correct 400,000 Euros asking price ...

Nope, but I heard it. The sound is like a hairdryer; they definitely have to do something about it. I talked to the guy who drove it ... he mentioned good handling and a lot of umpf :laughing6:
