A lovely colour
« on: 06 September 2018, 02:16 AM »
A 450SEL for sale in my home town appears to be either English Red or Brilliant Red Metallic. These seem to be rare colours and I can't decide which it is unless I take my laptop along.

It's a lovely  by the way, but does anyone know of the car? Private plate MSW 003.

Also lurking is a SM Citroen MSW 004

I'm afraid that if I get close to the car and look under the bonnet at that lovely V8 my wallet will start to twitch.

I may have to take a support person with me to investigate.

Will report
