    Yep, buy a reliable old banger.

    I do a lot of driving. Life's too short to spend that much of it in an old banger... :D

    Besides, we have a ute for hack duty.

    A comfy, fully restored Mercedes 350sl. Dream time.

    Power, comfort, reliability, street cred... Something worth polishing :wink:

    I think you could be right. It could be the self imposed penance of a Presbyterian.

    Lolz. That red 280SL sold for USD 132000 and the owner was disappointed. Later that day a green one sold for over 220k... they are serious money. Cheap they most certainly aren't

    That's not real is it? Looks like they've stuck a Porsche and an Aston Martin together.

    Good for you, we can all make plans for the future. My beautiful SEAT is 20 this year and still drives like a dream. I think. I haven't started her up for a fortnight. Perhaps I'll plan to drive her in the future.
    And the white estate is nice - I'd love one :mrgreen:

    Need to be practical for my biking habits And the wagon looks less like a 'Men-o-Porsche' type of car than the green one :)

    E or C - class? The old E used to have self-levelling suspension which was handy buying wine in France and beer in Belgium. All duty paid of course, God Bless the EU :wink:
    Although it's probably not an issue with a couple of bikes and a change of clothes for a dirty weekend away.

    Prefer the E as its 4wd and definitely has the room for a non-dismantled bike inside. Might be a bit of a close call with the C.
