l8rz Mercedes Brown Car.

Recommended Posts

It was a bland Wednesday in September. The air in the office was as thick as a greenhouse and the clock limped on awkwardly like a fucked whippet.

I looked out through the smeg smeared glass at the outside people frolicking merrily amongst the swirling breeze.

Sigh.

 

iphone out. Ebay app engaged.......................HOLY TITS! DO WANT!

 

I spied a German car, slathered in brown and loaded with gubbins.

Seriously do want.

 

Its local. Not far from Overrun. Calculate finances. Can not afford. Lay credit cards out on table and do SERIOUS MATHS.

 

 

 

This might just be feasable.

 

Wind forward an ebay listing and a let down for the seller. Get in while his morale is low!

GERMAN BROWN, TEXTURE LIKE SUN

 

These things are just lovely aren't they. They seem to be a type of car that just doesn't exist any more. I know Mercedes still make 2 dr coupes but they are models in their own right whereas these seem like a 2-dr coupe version of a taxi. They have the added benefit of looking absolutely great. I say ditch the German look reg plates, otherwise just buy a deck chair and sit and stare. Lovely!

Very nice indeed herr shitpeas, what does the drivers seat bolster look like? Personally I'm biased but these pre facelift models look nicer than the later ones post 1992 with the rounder headlamps and curvy bonnet.

Yes, the plates shall be the first things to go. Id like some nice origonal dealer plates in an applicable font. Or might just put the originals back on.

 

 

Although I would say some metal plates in a legal font would look great on this (or indeed any car)

Seat bolster looks spot on condition wise. Think the thick tweedy stuff wares a LOT better than leather would. And the seats are super sprung and absolutely luxurious.

Its a lovely place to stick your arse.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
       
      MEH.
