    Hello

    I'm the new proud owner of a 1989 560 SEC

    Not the oldest car I've owned, but certainly the longest!

    Looking forward to find more about it and keeping her in the condition she deserves!

    Welcome to the community

    Hi you lucky, lucky owner!! I spent ages looking for a 500 or 420 sec. Ground breaking vehicles, I have a soft spot for these and the old 115s which was my previous merc. Couldn't find the right one close enough so settled with a CLK. Pictures please!

    I finally got around to uploading a couple of pictures

    Really enjoying the 560 so far; such a refined cruiser and always an occasion to drive her.

    Had a slight issue when she didn't start last weekend, but some time sent on various forums directed my troubleshooting and bit of wiggling the fuel pump relay and we're back on the road.

    Except now the seat belt butler goes out, but not back in ...

    Anyway, here she is. I'm not convinced on the wheels. I think I may have to seek out some originals.

    Hello and welcome.

    What a stunner:cool: I agree on the wheels. It needs some original 15 hole spoerlines.
