I did notice an extraordinarily large number of new photographs appearing in the daily backup....

Peter,
Some of these pictures may even contain a relation, as remote as it can be, to Mercedes W113 commonly called Pagoda...

BTW
I bet that individual back-up storage systems have been also filled recently with the said pictures to create very private collections... :D


OK One more, but this time exceptionally decent....

At the point of reading John's subjective response to Rudy's subjective post, I realised that this thread had been read 666 times.





So maybe John has a point...

John

I would expect that you expand on this essential question. Be more specific, give arguments and provide well documented sources. Wikipedia is obviously not accepted... :)

But, 190 SLs can skank it up a bit too...

And, then a more historical perspective with Rosemarie Nitribitt...

Look her up to learn the story.

Ah no, John.
She is not Rosemarie Nitribitt. RN was a blonde and owned a black (DB 040) 190 SL, not a white or off-white.
Further, she did not post herself nude ... this was not so common in the 50ies in DE (but more from the 60ies onwards).

Enclosed is a pic of the real Rosemarie Nitribitt with her 190 SL.
She was later murdered and her car is missed today.
Here is her story:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitribitt

and not just as detailled:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosemarie_Nitribitt

and here:

http://www.google.de/imgres?imgurl=http://www.express.de/image/view/2008/1/9/650016,122191,highRes,maxh,480,maxw,480,Rosemarie%2BNitribitt.%2BDer%2BMord%2Ban%2Bder%2Bbekanntesten%2BHure%2BDeutschland%2B%2525282569570741%252529.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.express.de/duesseldorf/rosemarie-nitribitt-lagerfeld-fuhr-ihr-traumauto-kaputt,2858,650014.html&h=361&w=480&sz=16&tbnid=W8UPIcygQCzZaM:&tbnh=114&tbnw=152&zoom=1&usg=__jOClZqFPXkmuQfAwMrw-AGJ_BV0=&docid=9ZldG0FOzOgkJM&sa=X&ei=wuLGUoj1E8fMywPQ-oDgAg&sqi=2&ved=0CDQQ9QEwAQ&dur=1567

(please help yourself with the google translator please)

I cannot confirm whether the second half regarding Karl Lagerfeld and RN's 190 SL is true or not ...



RN caused a hard time to the Daimler officials since her ownership put a kind of "taste" or bad reputation onto the 190 SL in general; something that Mercedes tried hardly to shake off from their overall SL image during the later 121042 production years.
This "taste" was only over when the successor of the 190 SL was introduced in 1963 ....

Achim
(not only because of this "story" above, he likes the 190 successor much more)

Should this thread be restricted to "full members"  it may convince some of the basic members to convert their memberships to "Full" ... seems to be getting more attention than Linkage Tour ... or Starting Tour ...  ;D

Nah ... since there are no tools required of any kind not to speak of technical assitance needed to solve any issues ... I think it is well placed right here where it is in Way off Topic :)

Eric ... nah I would not wish for that ... to go back nah to all them issues no way.

Eric,
This is the fastest developing thread on the forum. I think that it may attract rather than detract...

Here is one that goes together with one already placed before...

The attached picture should actually be placed in the Tech Manual as it illustrates how to change the curtesy light's bulb under the dash board

I find that the fresh spirit that animated the posts of this thread is somewhat weaker, so here is some new fire

One of the previous posts showed a young lady with 190SL. Here she is in two other poses...

I know that the original poster was looking for a certain Pagoda picture but it seems that there are other photos of Mercedes Benz automobiles located in this thread (I think). So in keeping up the Mercedes theme I offer this photo to those that might be interested:

I was so thrilled by the view of the Canadian Fridge picture in the "Polar Vortex" thread that I thought that a series of photographs with warming up effect would somehow help our frozen members in Canada and upper US states to traverse this cold experience . Let's try... Hope it helps.

I think the phrase is, "nice legs, shame about the boat race." At least that's how our Cockney friends might put it.

Plus, I'm never too comfortable about having anything draped across my bonnet - hood if you must - no matter how attractive.

We kind of either laugh or ogle at the suggestive or racy photos here, but at the real auto shows, at least in the USA and specifically the Detroit show http://www.naias.com/ most of the automaker's booths are staffed by a group of models, youngish men and women. The women are not much different in dress and appearance than some of the photos showing here, but what you probably didn't know is that they are (not fooling here) all highly skilled and knowledgable about the products they stand before. There's one primary agency that handles this hired talent and there's a lot of training involved. When at the media days this past week with the editor of The Star magazine, we stopped and quizzed a couple and sure enough they had the brains to match the beauty; they most definitely knew what they were talking about. The name of the agency that hires and trains these is called Productions Plus. http://www.productions-plus.com Many of the models, also known as "Sirens of Chrome" travel the show circuit…so it's not a full time job but pretty significant employment.

I would not discard the interesting perspective that the driver of this W100 would have in such a setting.

Obviously, for such a sophisticated car I would expect the driver to also have a synthetic view display above the "main scene" ;D
