2017 has been a fantastic year for this website, almost 100.000 visitors have found it’s way to this site. That is absolutely amazing and I thank you all for the support by reading. Lets hope 2018 will be even better and with more high quality articles.
I will continue to publish DIY posts and other classic car related posts in this year to come, so stay tuned.
What new can you expect from 2018? DIY for the W140 S600 as something new and exiting. I hardly find any information for these cars on the internet. Some long awaited videos will come up around Q2-Q3 where we will take a spin in some Mercedes classics.
Before the summer I acquired a 1996 w140 S600 (Japan spec) as an addition to my w123 280CE, hence the updated site main picture as of July 2017. It is actually the same car I did the review on last year and the offer was simply too good to refuse. The car is an extremely good find with under 70.000 km original km in its 20 years lifespan.
The car collection is now actually beginning to be a collection rather than a car! My plans with this car is to keep it completely original and use it mainly for long road trips with extreme comfort, silence and v12 power on-demand. I also hope the value for this flagship will increase significantly since the 600 version is rarer than most production vehicles and the value is now around the lowest it can be (I hope).
I will be posting maintenance DIYs where possible with this car, which are extremely hard to find by the way! And I will be looking into doing car related videos, starting with filming the S600 and then the 280CE. I did some camera tests now in the summer, which I will post almost immediately under the Videos section. I am though planning to making better videos with use of external mic for excellent sound quality which so many car videos lack except high end production.
