      How to begin? 
      Purchased the 406 from @davehedgehog31.  
      Resisting the temptation to do any sort of fettling until I put it through its MOT.  Headlights were a bit yellow so sanded back and polished. Not bad but not brilliant. She is really bloody clean for her age. 
      Next - the indicator stalk was very floppy. Right turns cause the left indicator to come on when it self cancels and gravity takes hold. Culprit is a wee plastic plunger within the stalk that wears. Wheel off. Stalks off and apart. Plunger replaced. (Will skip the part were I had to take it apart another two times to  fix the clock spring and the airbag light). Now the indicator works with a satisfying click.  Yeah the photos are crap. I'll try and get better at this.

      Wait a fucking minute. It's a collection of a car already in my ownership.

      I know I have not posted on here for a long time, but I thought that I would share my new daily wheels...
      it’s a 2003, 53 (Facelift) S500 L (long wheel base)
      just ticked over to 180,364 miles (I got it at 179,220 miles) 
      What a car, it is NOT greedy on fuel despite everyone telling me before I got it that it would be, it’s not.
      5.0 V8, 306bhp 7 speed Auto.
      its seriously lovely, riding on the airmatic suspension.
      barely above idle speed at 80mph & for it’s size, it’s seriously quick when it is needed.
      Also, the silence inside is amazing, you can barely hear any noise, it’s so silent & insulated from the outside world.
      Yes, I know that most people will tell me about the horrors of the W220 Mercedes-Benz S Class, but this is a good one, no rust or rot (early examples up until 2002 were notoriously bad for rot everywhere) the 2003 facelift model onwards were not as bad.
      & my one is not blighted with any rot.
      Here it is, after being fully valeted today.

      Vendor of one of my all time favourite 'must haves' just rang me back after a week of waiting thinking I'd missed the boat. It's a tank, one of the residents on this very site finally nabbed one recently, although I may have hit the V8 manual jackpot!
      Face it - I'm a shiter - so if it's not needing to be swept up to move it I'm buying the fekker!
      Wanted to go tonight but it's a fair distance away and I'm still in the office.........
      Anyone interested or wanting to guess.... knock yourselves out.

      In spite of the current summer heat, we decided to drive 70 km to Augsburg and have a look at a former tramway depot recently converted to a show room for some asian cars. Started in a pair of Tagora's, but it didn't go well. Dinin Tagora decided that running on all 6 cylinders is optional, so we left him at the next exit and went on in only the silver SX. First time ever i have been sitting in the rear of a Tagora, very comfy and spacious!

      Met there with a 504 friend helping us to assure the parking lot gets a decent share of "proper" cars.

      This looks promising.

      Big picture of a cosmo..

      they have the real thing as well

      and much more!
      A RX7 registered to Mr. Felix Wankel

      a rotary station wagon

      rotary bus

      and even a Wankel wrecker.

      enough cars here i have never seen before to fill several pages in the " Cars you didn't know existed " thread.
      .. more to come
