    After a while bansihed into the wilderness due to a leaking sunroof . . . the 79' 280ce made a comeback this sunday.

    I took the cover off .. opened the door .. and it had gone mouldy :crazy:

    The seat looked like a cress patch ! and the steering wheel pure green!!
    ...Oh the distress that followed .. but then I turned the key and without hessitation it burst into life :)
    Magic :)

    Cleaned the wheel, washed the seat, took it for a spin...

    With the advent of the latest C240 to the household, the old un has sat there un-loved, but after 5 miles with all the windows down and the sun shining .... the love flooded back :bannana:

    Top bananas !!

    What cover do you use for it? I don't think it should be going mouldy really, is the car actually kept outside?

    Sounds great though, well done :bannana:

    It's one of those Dupont 'Tyvek' covers. which is supposed to breathe.

    The fact it went mouldy is the seat being wet I think .. not had a problem with the cover before now.

    So the moral of the tale is ... If you're thinking of selling your car.... Wait 6 weeks take it for a spin then decide :)

    I'll give mine another 12 months :rolleyes:
