I'm off to check out a W109 tomorrow up north of Perth a 6.3 to be exact. anyway how about a Saturday morning catch up say at Cottesloe? can you suggest a cafe or maybe we could meet at Tims place? to inspect the progress of current projects.
cheers

My place would be fine if the consensus is such, and there is a top notch (last time I went there, anyway) cafe around the corner too (probably packed on Saturday morning though).

I will be bringing the 6.9 up for some assembly/sunroof removal work, but that might be in the afternoon. The 560 is out the front.

Was that the 6.3 in Greenwood? I believe Nathan knows a bit about that one from memory.

Hey Tim,

That would be great, lets say around 10am at your place, I look forward to checking out the recent arrival.

and yes the 6.3 is at greenwood, belongs to a chap called Hans. I will be meeting with him today.

would appreciate any local history on this car, Nathan?

Tim,
quick reminder please, your address, just the name of the street.
or you can PM with your phone number
Sorry to hear you are under the weather Major Tom, hope to catch up one day.

I checked out the 6.3 today, nice general condition, the suspension worked well and gave really good handling, the body looked straight and clean but the motor had a bad miss which let it down.  The owner seemed to think it was just fouled plugs but I would have to get it checked out properly before I would consider a purchase. anyway a bit of fun and got to meet another mercedes enthusiast.
robert
ps, the coffee is on me

Sure thing Robert,

Congdon St.

Regarding the 6.3, you would indeed want to make sure it wasn't a lack of compression type of miss. He's probably right though about the fouled plug.

Nathan,

I do believe there is another WA 6.3 available, I saw it on one of the car sales websites recently, and it wasn't the Greenwood one. Or is this a different 6.3 altogether? ;D

I'll give you a call.
