It sure is...
I agree here’s my latest and less than £30 for a day date auto
Any love for the 6309-7290...??? Well, I'm rather fond of the old girl (31 this year).
I vividly recall those silly Mercedes / Granada comparison commercials. Who were they trying to kid?!!!
You'll never see Ford Granadas (or Chevy Citations, Dodge Aries etc.) featured on classic and vintage car calendars. There's a reason for that and it has to do wretchedness, both then and now.
As a junior loan officer back in late 1970s I was also responsible for delinquent note collections for the more senior lenders. Auto loans were a bigger deal in banking back in the day. We maintained dealer recourse lines with the new car dealers in town. I repossessed lots of Granadas and returned them to the Ford dealer. They really didn't resemble Mercedes models of that era at all.
They did if you were on acid, which is the only way you would have bought one, in the first place. So I'm told, anyway.
I am very biased! When I was growing up my neighbor had a 81' 300D in Manila Beige(I became obsessed with it over my childhood). Soon my first car became a 1980 Mercedes 240D in "classic white". Obsulutely obessed by old German cars. I saw a Cordoba a few weeks back. I may still have it(don't have a Cordoba)..
Been there done that, around the same time too. Glad to not own a diesel anymore.
Okay, I'll admit, the 240D handled pretty nicely, despite the lack of power.
Nothing like freezing in the dark at 6 in the morning waiting for glow plugs.
Just joined recently, I plan to purchase an Omega soon, but I started my collection with Seikos.
Here’s my recent one, SARB017 with a shell cordovan strap
Another SARB017 reporting in
Something a little different haha
Hmm i see the resemblance of the logo, but I am unsure. Could it be?
I am desperately looking for a Seiko A159 4029 (pictured below) , working and in good to excellent condition.
My brother, who has MS, is having his 70th Birthday at the end of July.
In order to surprise him, we are buying things that he cherished when he was younger..toys, comics, etc.
He owned and LOVED this watch and always talks about when he finally scraped the cash together to buy his new Seiko. It was a TRULY cherished watch and I would love for him to own it once again...
If ANYONE has one that they would sell, or has a line on someone who MIGHT, I would be VERY grateful!
I will check here frequently, but my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org in case you need to contact me, directly.
