    Ownership Verified: Mercedes 280 SE (1981) aka. the ugly duckling...

So I should be expecting a world of crap to fall on me/the wallet. However: -The engine doesn't seem too thirsty, or the fuel meter/fueling...

    Porsche=VW soon

    It seems Porsche has finally done it...even though this doesn't mean they can make changes easily, because of German law. However I do think this is quite an achievement. Congrats Porsche! http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7813073.stm

    Worst day of my life....

    Yesterday evening, we were driving back with the family from a nature-park, and as we were coming off the side road, to the motorway, everything went wrong. As I accelerated, the gearbox changed down, and the rear end started sliding around, finally putting us in a 180 degree spin, into a...
