I've only got as far as putting the deposit on it yet.   ;)

I can't see it being much better than my R320 as it uses the same running gear and has basically the same engine. The R Class returned 32 mpg driving to & from the Midlands this week helped part by all the bl00dy 50mph restrictions on the M6. I can get it down to low 20s around tiwn without trying too hard  ;D

I quite like it......especially when presented in a 'fetching shade' of BL seventies brown. :) ::) ::) ::)

I think Mustard was the best 70's BL colour.  :y

I met a young guy the other day. He is an expert on all early Astras and owns a large double digit amount of them.


that sounds like a typical hoarder.

Could well be.


There's a similar 'expert' here who used to buy cheap but viable Capris and store them.  10 years later he has 50 cars that weren't worth repairing then(most of them were rotten low spec 4cylinder cars), and have been abandoned in a field since. He won't break or sell any parts or restore the few more covetable models because he has no skills or money to do so. Because he's a Capri enthusiast, and these are 'classic cars'


I owned a 1974 MK1 1600XL. It was white with a BVR which was popular back then.

It drove like a  lorry but when the cambelt snapped it didn't take the engine with it. :y :y :y

I know drivers who are away 6weeks at a time. In the days of the middle east runs 3months was the norm., No fancy hotels or such like.

I have a bonnet for one too, but havenít looked at it for 10 years so donít know what itís like. Bit like  SchrŲdinger's cat really. :)

Being 'fick' I had to Google this.

Interesting if brain-bending stuff. :)

I'd be interested to know your initial impression of the new derv-drinker Merc.

Delighted?

Indifferent?

Disappointed?

That young Tunnie fella claimed about 75 MPG for his derv Passat. ;)
