2012 Frankfurt W116 get-to-gether
« on: 25 September 2012, 02:49 AM »
My friend DrQ. sent me these photos from the recent frankfurt W116 enthusiasts meeting.  Apparently there were about 80 W116's in attendance.

Now that's a proper gathering of the clan, it would be great to see so many in one place. Not sure about the green thing with the rhino bar on the front, looks like it came out of mad max.

The green beast is impressive.

Interesting position of those mufflers on the hearse! Does anyone know exactly what the green battering ram is all about? I'm guessing maybe it takes regular trips to the Rhineland or Poland?

Could this green machine be the test vehicle that was camouflaged to hide the new look?  I see that it is parked next to a sign (in German) that seems to be about the introduction of the W116.

I suspected it was an attempt to work around the Versailles treaty

There's no border checks and hence border control posts between (most) EU member states anymore. One can just drive their battering rams up the autobahn and say "Hi, we're here. Again" ;)

That's Dr Q's car.  Its a 6.9.  He also has a completely restored zypressen 6.9, and a 450SLC fitted with 6.9 motor and 6.9 hydraulics....
