    Fantasic looking car.

    I'd rather keep the dust than use those dudes to clean my car.

    Pre facelift cab, very nice!

    Agree with kianok, I learnt the error of my ways and made the change!

    What a car though, love it.

    Nice!

    Would you like to sell me the radio - if all the led's work?

    Park it outside in the heavy rain - cleans the hood better than using tap water, comes up nice and black without the chemicals added to drinking water I've found.

    Buy the girl a proper cover, hopefully it won't get stolen,

    Oil pressure seems a little low for the miles, temp and revs it's doing, are you using Mobil 1, or a thicker oil? Is it due an oil and filter change....??

    Gorgeous car! In my experience paintwork from that era easily withstands powerwashing. I always get the local carwash to do my 124 but wouldn't trust them with my 211 (probably strip the paint and knock out all the electronics!) ...
