Last weekend my parents celebrated their 60th anniversary. Their first car, with many fond memories, was a Mercedes Benz 160 S. So my sister an I hired an old timer to pick them up for a drive to a nice place for coffee and cakes.
V4 is the original car with yours truly and sister taken somewhere in the early sixties Smile

v1 is an excellent lead, Rende, and an amazing bit of parking in v4. A lovely gesture indeed.

A terrific idea to hire an 'Oldtimer', and such a fine example too. You have made a wonderful set of photographs from the occasion.
V4 reminds us all that traffic jams are nothing new Sad

wonderful, looks a bit like the 170, I have never seen this particular model before..
bet you parents loved it 2 and 1 appeal both, good job you left the reflections. Bet the curves appeal to you a lot more than modern cars.
