      Am I too late to join the ZOMG party? I'm not a die-hard MB fan, but that is a DAMN nice car. Do want. DO. WANT.

      Great to see you spreading the word so others can appreciate the SEC, Henric.

      Oh, and be sure to let Mark P. know... the console box is coming as of tomorrow!

      (Had another stop in Quartzsite. This time, twas followed up by a 100mph blowout near Blythe, an eventful weekend racing an Audi at LeMons at Buttonwillow, and spending most of the night dealing with HPFP problems on a B7 A4, on the Grapevine, at midnight Sunday. And that was last weekend. This is why I forgot to mail Mark's part!)

      The car looks so great. So many memories of the period flood back.

      Including:



      500, 560...whatever it takes

      This one has been on the web for at least a decade, and was one of my early favorties in teh '90s:





      Very nice and a rare color combo! If you don't move on it, do pass on the details as there are a couple of fellow enthusiasts ready to get into one of these!

      Progress made on the interior. RR the dash that had a couple of cracks with a nice minty example. Recaros have been reupholstered. The headliner was wrapped in leather. The rear seats and parcel shelf are being tended to and are all that keep the interior from completion. Here are a couple of picts. Enjoy!

      I'm trying to spot it and I can't, which means it either doesn't exist or doesn't matter.

      WOW that is amazing. Someone send this to MB to remind them of the great designs they used to produce.

      Maybe it's just a kid thing, but I would take that over ANY new benz!!!

      You definitely need to do that!!!!!!!!

      We had about 3 or 4 w126's there a few months ago. One had a genuine AMG kit but no where near as beautifully done as yours. Here are some pics: (My brothers 85 500SEL is on the left)








      Please bring yours to CnC one day and let us know beforehand. I REALLY want to see your work of art in person.
      BTW, do you have repro kits to sell?
