116 gathering West Australia, Nov 2022

Started by nathan, 13 November 2022, 08:49 AM


For the 50th anniversary of the 116, I got in touch with a bunch of local 116 drivers to attend the annual Mercedes club event.  I had the names of about 25 drivers, but its intesting how time takes its toll on these cars.  Many are 'temporarily' off the road.  I got 13 cars in the end, including some id never seen before.  The dealer brought down a current S class and a new EQS (boy are they expensive!).  The weather in the morning was dark and pretty average, but the sun came out and subsequently gave me sunburn!
Some average pics within the limits of the sites file max.
