They also showed at Amelia Island. The Amelia Island show always has some nice ones!

Re: ...And one you've never seen

Both interesting looking cars...but not something that really catches my eye stylisticly. THe first looks too Rolls Royce-ish and the second Lancia-ish.

RE: ...And one you've never seen

I kind of agree with both of you... but I like the "British" look of the first one.

Was thinking myself how it could almost be a vintage Bentley ...

And agree that the second one, whilst looking very Italian, has minor proportional issues...

For modified classic Benzes, I prefer wagons:

Binz Modified 300 "Adenauer"

Binz Ponton Conversion..Ambulance or Hearse?

I'd love to get my hands on a vintage 190D Binz Conversion.

 

Here's one maybe you guys haven't seen...

Santos Kombi Conversion. From a conversion company in Portugal. And its a W115!

Wow the Adenauer wagon is new to me!

Not bad!  Now I'm wondering about an Adenauer woodie....

RE: ...And one you've never seen

Yeah I knew that was coming...

Was wondering, is the car called a woody and the other thing is a woodie?

Or the other way around?

Or neither?
