Katie - thank you! I'd love a copy of that one as well...


@alpinaltd - do you have that image is higher resolution (or even as a vector drawing)? It would be very pretty one to print and hang on the wall.

This is quite nice.

When displaying THAT particular image, someone airbrushed out the artist's name (Terry Davey) and the © copyright information from Haynes.
Mr. Davey and Haynes were celebrated in Pagoda Style, p52...with permission.  ;)

The W113 split view front/rear would make an awesome T-shirt

one of our sponsors at a pagodafest had one with the front of the car on the front of the T and the back of the Pagoda on the back. Unfortunately it was not a very good drawing of the front.

Fascinating - had no idea!
Seems like that book is the wrong source for the drawing though, after reading the reviews it seems as if the drawings where scaled up and made more fuzzy. Not a great combo..
Or more likely - they were never stored in high resolution, and hence they can't be reproduced in greater than book front cover size.
Bummer.
