  1. In 1974, Automobile Quarterly was looking for a 300 SL for John Fitch to drive so as to reacquaint himself with the type in preparation for an article he was writing. One of my cars was chosen (perhaps because it was red), so on a fine Autumn day I drove to Lime Rock Park for a spirited driving/photo session. The track was closed and there were only 3 or 4 of us present for most of the day. John drove for his "reacquaintance," I drove for a number of the photographs, and I was fortunate enough to ride with him for several laps that showed he had forgotten nothing about handling the 300 SL at speed. The car itself had been the Mercedes-Benz Standwagen at the 1956 New York International Automobile Show and provided the connection for me to a most memorable day that I would never have experienced otherwise.
  2. Speaking of things made in the GDR, here's one most have never seen:
  3. If its stuff that you're interested in, that person is a collector. If you have no interest, he's a hoarder.
  4. Most enjoyable picture thread. Too bad we took several years off, but perhaps it can be restarted with some new posts. Here's a Hinsdale 1/2" socket set that came to me via my maternal grandfather who was a mounted NYPD sergeant in the early 1900s.
  5. Whatever job he is supposed to be doing would never get done if it were up to me to do it.
  6. Many more regrets about items I've failed to purchase than about things I've sold. Even so, I'd like to have my '63 E-Type back in my garage.
  7. Remove and sell all the lifts. You'll still have room for 25 cars which should be enough for most of us.
  8. Change fluids sometime between "fairly recently" and "a while back."
  9. I'm as interested in the backgrounds as I am in the cars themselves. It would be nice if the posters would include location information, if known, so that we could all check the accuracy of our guesses. Keep up the good work.
  10. Get out the dead horse, it’s time to start beating him her again.
  11. Mercedes-Benz 1972 280 SE 4.5 (green bag) and 1985 380 SL (red bag).
  12. Some pictures taken at the 1956 New York International Automobile Show held at the then new New York Coliseum showing my 1956 300 SL which was especially prepared by Mercedes-Benz to serve as a Standwagen for the Show. The person I bought the car from in 1971 purchased it from M-B at the Show. Also attached is a picture of the car as it appears presently.
  13. 1969 Porsche 912 and BMW 507 tool kits:
  14. As this is an automotive site, I'm surprised no one has mentioned the clutch head screw
  15. Why be negative. Production companies can easily provide appropriate coverage for anything that is used in their work.
