I think our 2 cars are probably the oldest down our road there are  some run of the mill euro boxes & a couple of newish Beemers & Mercs but ours are the only ones that are garaged, most residents garages are full of junk ..

Maybach have form for producing some right mingers, so I'm sure it will fit in just fine.
....

There's a clip on YouTube where someone was filming an illegally parked Maybach as the recovery truck came to remove it. The recovery had to be aborted as the jib alarm went off because the Maybach was too heavy for it.  ;D

.....
I'm such a pauper, in my road there are Astra-Gs, Corsas, and Pug 30<something>...

Cheap cars ,that close to the blast epicenter ,it's not worth risking spending money on anything expensive....
unless it's Armour plated and bomb proof  :y

 ;D ;D ;D ;D (Had to quote it again just for TB)

Re other comments - we also probably have the oldest cars down the stre.. actually, no, we don't, I think Nico takes that spot across the road with his '04 Spec-B Legacy (basically an STi Impreza with a boot), then it's probably us with '06, '07 and '09 cars. Everyone else has nearly new boring stuff. Except maybe the brand new MX-5 with the obnoxious exhaust usually seen going from 0-50 (in a 30) right out of his driveway ;D

As owner of a P-reg I was sorely disappointed to realise we're the third oldest car in the street! There's another P-reg up the road - a Defender 110, and a black Chevette (tax disc shows hasnt been on the road since about 2004 or something like) SO I dont even get the title of oldest Vauxhall.   ::)

And at present I'm not really sure which out of my car and the Chevette which hasn't run in 15 ish years, counts as the more roadworthy  :D

Brand new BMW X3 which the taxpayer pays for because their kid is disabled misbehaves  ::), then the usual crop of euro/jap/korea boxes all 3-10 yrs old. Honda CRZ, XF, early Impreza estate are the nearest thing to 'interesting' cars on the street.

And then, for no apparent reason, the other night there was a matt black Lambo Huracan!  :o

Someone getting their 'delivery' .. ;D

There's apparently a Mk1 Escort around here somewhere, but I've never seen it - probably living in a garage as an "investment".

You can't really miss the Audi R8, Audi S8 or Audi Q7 that live around the corner though - they all have rather loud exhausts.. and belong to the same person ;D I think the Cobra might be louder if I ever finish it :-X ;D

Had several new cars in the past, but more sensible now don't mind how old they are now as long as they are in excellent condition .
