...In looking through my various galleries, I realized how difficult it is to choose.

But, being the kind of Manly Man I am with Manly Ways and Manly Plans, difficult is always a challenge...  thus, I offer for your enjoyment:



...I dare you, each and every ONE of you, to pick your favorite shot of a 116 and post it here.

One photo came straight to mind.  It has to be Nutz's 116chick  :o 8)




But if we're talking just w116's, This shot below was used for early badge sketches.  I just love the stance, the colour, the beefed up yet elegant look.  I haven't really taken any favourite shots of my car. 

1973 350SE, my first & fave

Apart from that Magnificent Silver AMG photo above ( ;)) I have always loved this car below.  If I own another 6.9 it will be in this deep dark blue with a light coloured interior.  (Silver with Black was very cool though  ;))






And isnt it interesting how many of us like the cars with the AMG front spoiler?  Best thing I ever did to mine!

sigh....sitting back contemplating the next purchase..!

This is probably a bit boring by comparison, but this was an exceptional example from DC - taken at Techno Classica 2005. I will adhere to the rules and only post ONE photo !

Those look like the fabled 15" bundts on the green car.  Wow.

Actually, I need to revise my choice (cheater!!!)... as someone should cast a vote for those oh-so-burly Macho Disco American bumpers!
