  1. I agree, that exhaust bodge in place of the missing cat is shocking but some unfortunate clueless type might not Notice and end up buying the thing.
  2. And maybe you could put your handbag away. Back to topic and as already mentioned the later D5 engines are not as bullet proof as the earlier versions.
  3. Yes, it will only be used as a weekend car during spring and summer months and definitely not when there is even a hint of the highly corrosive winter mixture about..
  4. It’s a cracker! Would I be right in thinking it was the early W208’s that dissolved and later ones like this are better made?
  5. Thanks, I already am! The only thing that lets it down are the tatty alloys so I’m looking out for a set of AMG wheels that I’m planning on getting done in a gunmetal colour which I think would look good against the silver.
  6. I wasn’t looking for another car but my good friend and garage owner was asked by a customer to sell his car as he’s had to stop driving due to health issues, it’s a lovely example with full history including the original bill of sale from what was Plymouth’s Mercedes dealer at the time. It’s completely rot free and has done 80,000 miles, everything works, it drives perfectly and it was bagged for a very attractive price.....
  7. I hope not, This glorious old Saab would not look good with a beardy Ned hipster behind the wheel.
  8. Yes that first pic is a Guy Big J, I don’t think the Leyland Marathon had to suffer the 500 series ‘fixed head’ engines, they had the TL12 Leyland engine or Rolls Royce and I’m sure Cummins options like the superb Roadtrain that followed.
  9. It’s made me laugh and cringe reading through this thread, the best way to sell a car is to someone on here...
  10. Love this car, I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw a MK3 Escort estate, what a survivor!
  11. Looks like a Hillman Hunter, was the pic taken In Weymouth by any chance?
