What makes a barn find? Liberal amount of dust, debris, chicken shit and of course the barn? Can you find something that was never lost? I think you cannot so this is not really a barn find. Just parked in a barn for a winter and then some.
300SL Gullwing may be great many things but it's far from ideal weapon of choice when taking a tight apex on race track. As demonstrated by our here struggling to keep the TR2 behind with its swing axles tucking under.
Bloody hell, how did you do it? The color really elevates the car. Such a sharp design now!
Thanks! Sharp is the word, while I would not call it a beautiful car the design is super clean and sharp. And yes I'm extremely happy with the colour I chose. The other option would have been light metallic green. In hindsight it would not have been this
Let's assume you can only keep one...-harsh I know- Which will go?
That's easy. 300TDT will win hands down and 560SEC would be the one to let go.
Jaguar E-type S1 FHC Nose Job
A huge part of the car's exterior consists of the bonnet. It's hardly as surprise that it's also a mammoth task to restore one. Unless you have money burning holes in your pocket as new items are available for the cheque book restorer. My equity is made of sweat though.
I once saw Porsche 356 Speedster with Borrani wheels, rarity as well.
I bet! These are BMW 1800TI /2000CS/Alpina
I've been lurking at https://e9coupe.com/forum/ for some time and saw someone posting a link to this blog. Oddly the first reaction at e9 Forum was that this is not true and you're making the stuff up.
Sad to hear the forum has fallen to that level.
Never mind bro, just give them the good ol' Irish sign of peace
Racing Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing...
I'm wondering if anyone has any information on this incident. These are two 300SL Gulwings parked in the middle of a rally of some kind with third one on fire. This looks like it took place in Germany?
That is Richard von Frankenberg's Porsche 645 Spyder prototype at Berlin Grand Prix 1956. He shot out the bank and flew through the hedges finally landing next to 300SL #49.
Mercedes 280SE 5.0 W108
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?
