Quick selection from yesterdays Mercedes-Benz shoot:


Mercedes AMG GT Roadster at the NDSM-plein, Amsterdam


Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC lost in the Amsterdam harbour area.


Mercedes-Benz G300 TD Extreme a few moments after a keen invitation to tango on a soon-to-be parking space.


This Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG by Kleemann is a monster cruiser with a Kompressor mated to the 5.5 liter V8: 630 hp / 900 Nm.

This is my old W124 Turbodiesel.

It looks standard from the outside but has a modified engine and transmission etc. I love the combination of comfy 4 seater practicality, mechanical diesel simplicity, economy and outragous performance when required. I’ve had her in this guise for over 5 years, we use it for family holidays, visiting friends around the country, trips to Spa etc and I also do the odd 1mile, 1/2 roll racing event.

Some lovely cars on this thread - thought you might appreciate me adding this old girl.

This needs a thread of it's own and lots of pictures in it. If it isn't too much trouble biggrin

My C63S looking 'as nature intended' covered in brake dust, dirt and dead flies after a spirited run from the UK to Normandy in summer 2020.

Perfect use for it.

I've been down to the south and southwest of France & Normandy numerous times in my various C43 & E500 estates.

This was 3 years ago before I stuck some 18's on.

I do, usually only picked up a copy if there was W202 content, but did subscribe late last year.

After all the above wonderful cars here's one I bought new in 2001 and sold in 2013 after 350,000 kms, which, apart from servicing, cost me £2,000 in repairs. I sold it to a friend who still has it.



It was followed by this one, a basic T204 200CDi, still with us, and which has done 250,000 kms, with not one thing going wrong and needing only servicing.



That is now the wife's shopping trolley, and I replaced it with another 2014 T204 C200CDi, bought 18 months ago, 18,000 miles and all bells and whistles, but which has only done 10,000 trouble-free miles due to lockdown. No need to post a photo - it looks the same although it is an Avant Garde and not basic. These three were preceded in 1994 by a used W204 saloon, again virtually trouble free in 100,000 miles. What is astounding is that in all those miles and years I have never had to replace a battery. These aren't like the cars above, just reliable everyday transport, and very cheap motoring, but are a tribute to the reliability of a Mercedes.
