My Lawn Ornament

Well,not exactly on the lawn! 71 250 W114 which I saved from being executed last year. Beautiful condition interior without a single rip or tear.Outside on the other hand needs attention and I will eventually bring it inside and repaint it and get a set of euro headlights for it.It runs fairly well and am  going to upgrade to a MSN ignition system due to all the problems I'm having with the stock ignition system.

And saving these from execution is a very high calling indeed--my compliments!

Meanwhile, it must be admitted that Nutz's driveway is far more attractive & interesting than most peoples' lawns

Heres my W108 72 280SE 4.5 which I also saved from execution.This is the only photo I have from the day I saved it from the death row storage yard. Costing me a small fortune with all the storage fees every month,this one and the others In the end though when I'm cruising,it will all be worth it

Re: My Lawn Ornament


Lawn ornament gone,I gave it away due to me having no interest in it really. I tried to get attached but just couldn't.

Yea, I used to feel this tingling feeling of high energy every time I sat in my car...then I found out it was a loose wire in the seat heater.
