I'm surprised that you've managed to find three W116 Mercedes, particularly as one of them is still at 'work'! They seem to be getting pretty rare.

That J plate SAAB is a 1709cc. I think that means it'll have a freewheel, which is supposed to be quite scary on a car as heavy as the 99.

Definitely a pre-facelift one then? I'm not sure which I prefer, they both look odd.

Marvellous. I think that FSO would have come from Worcestershire originally. Interesting arcticle - seems quite balanced too, especially as they assume that Botnar was never actually guilty of anything.

An ex-R.O.C. car, used to turn up at events and was advertised in the mag at one point. When I enquired several years ago it was missing, presumed dead. Nice to see it's still alive and kicking - maybe now's your chance to track it down and put in an offer Mr Lobster :wink::wink:

Looking at my own car and the others that have appeared on the site just recently makes me realise that although the original R11 started to look dated in the late eighties, it now looks much more attractive and individual than the bland shite phase two that followed it.

If it was't for the fact that I'm in Lancashire and it's in London (presumably?) then I would. However, if anyone wants to stick a note on it for me....

I'm happy to note it up, it did share a driveway with a modern Renault Kangoo(?) so I'd presume them to be enthusiasts

Then I popped to the good old fashioned scrappie around the corner to find these:

I could've had a door off this if someone hadn't dropped their car on it

quite a nice little Uno

a lovely BMW that I'm sure was cruising around a month or so ago

Then floating around sarrrf London a Dutton

I had to go fetch the Missus from Gatwick this week and on the Purley Way I struggled to keep up with this:
Posted Image
and because I was early I popped into Bridges scrappy in Pease Pottage which was a bit empty but I was obviously upset to see a few cars that I would have saved and most I wouldn't:
A really solid and rare 2 door Scrote Estate, obviously stood under a tree for a while but otherwise good
Posted Image
A really clean 205GRD with an amazing piece of retro audio equipment, a Hitachi SW adapter, must be worth a bit to those in the know
Posted Image
Posted Image
Again, sat under a tree, only damage seems to be yard damage
Posted Image
Posted Image
45k on the clock 213SE with a slush box, spotless and rust free
Posted Image
Looked really straight apart from the motor on the roof
Posted Image
light front end damage sent this here
Posted Image
bit of a rarity now, diesel too

That Audi is amazing, who was I talking to about these? Whoever it was, they were certain that these cars were extinct in the UK.
