E-type, the most beautiful car in the world -end of discussion! However...the over riders always seemed an after though to me.

280SE 5.0 -a little story how (not?) to swap a 5.0 m117 light alloy engine followed by a four speed slush box into a vintage Mercedes, 280SE w108. To make things more ticklish the whole procedure will be carried outdoor during the winter months. OK, admitted under a roof -Oh boy aren't spoiled?
I thought I`d sniff at it but it`s kinda cute.
Barn Find: Mercedes-Benz o319
Our barn fresh o319, the ex-Soulset Tour Bus, sees the daylight for a first time in a while. The bus has not turned a wheel on the road since 1968! Now who could resist a face like that? Read the background story at: http://www.classicdigest.com/article/view/id/20
That's how it was back then. People harping about matching numbers and the rest of that BS have absolutely no idea of the reality when it comes to historical racing cars. It was all about mix and match to make it to the next race.
The starting point of the massive project of this rotten -59 Caddy.
I got the car in 2008 and after almost 7-years of restoration it starts to look what I wanted. See the complete restoration story from here: garage59.blogspot.com
