All vehicles listed on this page are (unless otherwise stated) physically in my possession and are in various stages of preparation. The ones at the top of the page, with photographs are imminent, whilst the ones at the bottom of the page may be some time yet.
As always, my aim is to I get my cars as good as I possibly can within the constraints I have, so its not unusual for some of my vehicles to spend a few months or even longer in preparation, until I'm 100% happy they're ready to go. Incidentally, preparation goes far deeper than just a wash and polish. For me its much more involved than that, and a process that will hopefully ensure continued trouble free ownership.

1981 Mercedes W126 500SEL Auto
63K Miles - FSH (35 Stamps) - Simply Stunning.
This has to be one of the best, and earliest examples of what is generally regarded as the best S-Class ever made; the W126 series. Finished in beautiful 480 Manganese (Bronze) metallic with pristine 234 Palomino leather, this really is an incredibly well preserved piece of automotive history. She's covered just 63,000 miles, and comes with a full, and extensive MB service history, the service book contains an impressive 35 years, one for every year of its life. Excellent specification includes cruise control, climate control with aircon, heated seats, original Blaupunkt radio; everything works as it did, the day it left the factory back in 1981. I've kind of taken a shine to this one, and have been enjoying owning it myself; it is for sale, but I'm in no rush to sell it!.

1992 Mercedes W201 190D 2.0 Diesel 5sp Manual
Just 39K Miles - Excellent History - Rare Spec.
Finished in 568 Signal Red with stunning Oxblood check cloth Interior. Having covered just 39K miles, this condition of this car is simply amazing and is one of the best W201's I've come across. According to the last owner it hasn't been out in the wet for at least five years, and never used in the winter. This car is the polar opposite to today's electronically laden vehicles, in that it has absolutely nothing to go wrong at all; there's no electric windows, no sunroof, no central locking and not an ECU in sight; its absolutely charming and very endearing. It was definitely specified with reliability, longevity and durability in mind.

Very probably the best Rover Convertible available anywhere. I've loved driving this car in the recent sunny weather; its one of those cars that just makes you happy!.

1990 Mercedes W124 260E Auto
Just 47K Miles- 2 Owners - FSH
Finished in 122 Pearl Grey with Mushroom Quarz Cloth interior, I've always said the M103 engined 260E is probably the best incarnation of the "regular W124's". Previously sold by me in back 2010 as a one owner car at just 38K miles, it has been owned by the same mature gentleman since. Now back with me I feel a real duty to towards this car, so I've gone somewhat OTT in ts preparation. Features include electric windows, electric tilt/slide sunroof, front armrest, rear headrests, headlamp wipers, cruise control and original Blaupunkt Melbourne Tape/Tuner. The car is shown in the pictures wearing steel wheels, but will be fitted with chronologically correct genuine Mercedes 15-hole alloys. (steel wheels/trims available if desired)
