iPhone Road Shots: Maserati Quattroporte

Bellezza!!!.. Like a fine crafted designer pair Italian shoes this girl is... This car just screams and flairs it's hands all around even when it's sitting still (no pun intended.. well maybe)! Ya, ok... it's not perfect... many complain about it's goofy floppy gearbox... and it being underpowered compared to it's German Uber Saloon rivals. But, who cares how fast your going? Really... it's like having an extreme makeover.. when you look this good, you want to get where your going as slowly as possible so everyone takes notice!

The Mercedes 126... another owners love for one of the greatest cars ever made

Well, as my readers probably know by this point, I am a huge fan of the Mercedes-Benz 126 chassis cars. They are one of the finest crafted automobiles ever made in my opinion. And if you don't believe me, just ask someone who owns one! Here is an email and picture I received from one of my readers who loves their 126 Benz. Thanks to Stevan for sharing his thoughts and a picture of his beautiful 1990 300SE!

I have a 1990 300se in excellent condition! This is all due to my car being a solid, well built machine that does not require more than replacing general parts. I could say that my 1990 MBZ still has 90% of it's original parts! (excluding the "usual things" for every car). Otherwise my 300se has been a "thoroughbred" in which it had become pampered. Good things are meant to keep! After 18 years & 189.000 miles, this car will NOT be replaced anytime soon! After all this time, mechanics and car dealers are still drawn to it with wonder.

Thanks Stevan! that pretty much sums it up!
