favorite picture of your car
« on: October 03, 2013, 18:07:26 »
In search for a new desktop picture I was thinking it would be great if we would have a place where each of us could upload the favorite picture of our own car.
This way we might also see some different color combinations etc...

Since I do not believe we have this I created this thread ; here is my 250 SL color code 158H MB Tex 115.

Good idea Pascal ... here is mine for now :) (it is my desktop on my computer)



EDIT -- Mind you the two photos below are also on my favourite list, they are the first shots I've ever taken of my car (before it was my car)
when I found her in this million dollar garage parked lonely amongst 18 other American Classics from the 40s and 50s some 60s There was a
kind of whisper in my ears sounded something like this

"rescue me get me out of here please" that was in March 2013 and I rescued her in May 2013. Glad I did.

I know some have seen this one before but, of all the many photos I have taken of my Pagoda, this has to be my favorite!

May I recommend using all your favorites as your screen saver slide show.  I have been collecting favorite pagoda pictures and have about 75 in my slide show.  Many of the members cars on this forum are part of my collection.  My PC going into screen saver mode is what keeps me sane during Monday morning management meetings.  ;D

Love that overhead shot of James Lester's car.

Every line of the Pagoda is perfect from any angle.

It's an old one of mine, but an action shot which I rather like...

1970 280SL. Please do not mail or PM me questions on Pagoda's... I'm not likely to know the answer.  Please post on the forum instead!
