    Chris your 120 is beutiful and sounds fantastic!:thumbsup: And yes I believe my Big Healey had a Moss gearbox, there was no Synchro in first but it did have overdrive in third and fourth. There certainly was a "feel" required to shift it smoothly/aggressively! Thanks for the video Chris, sure makes me miss my AH.:cool:

    Ain't that the truth!

    Say - can any of you vintage car fanciers identify this one? I can only assume it's a Mercedes-Benz as it was taken in Berlin in the late 20s.

    I don't think that's a 930... I think it is a 911 with a M491 option aka the widebody or turbo look package. Most speedsters have this option, the 930 engine and suspension was never placed into the speedster body. In fact of the 2000 plus or so Speedsters only about 170 had the narrowbody.

    Nice find though!

    Hard to say... so many people did bodies on these things, and the ones from the factory where pretty much all customs. Your going to need to find a picture of pretty much the exact same car and match it up, or someone will have to be a specialist in prewar German cars to ID it. There are some things that make me think it is a later car from the early 30's though... The vent integration into the hood does point to in house Mercedes circa 1930, it could be a w08 mercedes. https://translate.google.com/transl...ps://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_W_08 as already noted

    It can't be from the early 30s because my great-grandfather (sitting in the back seat; I've shown his Lange pocket watch) died in January 1930. I think it might be a type Mannheim but I've yet to find any lights like those over the spare tire. It's not terribly important.

    This car embodies my favorite entry-level supercars just after I graduated high school and just before they started using railroad ties for bumpers. Plus it is reliable as a rock and is on warranty. 1973 Pantera L ,1973 Dino 308 GT4...
    and now, 40 years later....2013 Camaro 2LT RS

    This is outstanding, both the car, and the late narrator/driver, David E. Davis, Jr.

    Unfortunately no HD.

    I wouldn't call it sexy but a 46,9 liter V12 BMW aircraft engine from 1925 mounted on an American LaFrance car from 1908 has his charms:

    You know, Y'all....
    One or more of us should REALLY have a Triumph Speedmaster and a watch of some similar-ish name...
    JUST for fun.

    Dodge Tomahawk: Viper V10 engine in a "motorcycle." It actually runs, but it doesn't like curves.

    I currently drive this...

    [​IMG]

    So the M2 will be a nice step up in power over the 128. Besides I miss having an M in the stable...

    [​IMG]

    I just hope they haven't overdone the steering. My wife's 2015 335 feels more disconnected than any BMW I've ever driven (we have owned 9 between us and driven many more)...at least when it's not in sport mode.

    Cheers, Al
