well i dont want to do it, but i do want a new car and i want a v8 BADLY:)my bro in law just got himself a hsv maloo the other day, and before that he bought an oldchool flacon v8 and i just got hooked:)
i really like newer statesmans, but they are hard to find with low mileage over here since they were used as taxis most of the time.
i love my sentia, but i cant really have another project car, i already have a work van and a spare car just sitting here and my wifes car too.

look at this merc, i just love it

my dad had a few back in moscow, s320, s500 and s600 hence why i always wanted one, they are just amazing:)
there is a s420 for sale that is already lowered and on mags and has a fresh panel and paint, its cheap as chips, but its tad old, but still amazing

moscow?? we neighbous?

my choice always was 190E, a neighbour used to run cars from germany. from 3 to 7 series, from 180 to 400 (have not been in the holy grail 600). once i saw that 190 E with evo kit...... that was it... was in love with them until only a few years back when actually got a chance to fondle one (hated the interior hated the engine bay)...

but love for germans has faded once he brought an r31 GTS-R.... them hotplates.... that sound from FJ20.... that tight tech interior, started to shaking the german lovin from me...

(long live the wedge)

then Jackie Chan in Canonball run.... the Starion, first time i saw pop-ups.... starwars dash.... i was sold to japs.
Image

came to australia, all had V8s... started getting into them, wanted the VP Ute, then VH SL/E (blue over silver).... nearly bought 3rd Gen Camaro (with the 305 TBI)...

then the the 4wheel skid in 32 GTR, dropping clutch at 5K (i still can't understand how it does it) and the brap of FC.... i was sold :)

although 190E.... i guess if one would come and i wouldn't have to get rid of my car, i would i reckon :D

nice clean lines (guess the one of the reason i love all 80s cars)
Image

anyway, way way way off topic here :D

yeah, was born in moscow, but moved to prague when i was about 8 or so. and then to auckland 7 years ago.\, so im not that much of a russian:)
after we moved to prague, dad run cars to moscow aswell for his mates and stuff...it was pretty good biz since germany was only few hours away.but it was always custom ordered s600s.god i loved those cars.
after we moved to nz and somehow got into vip scene, always wanted a gloria or a cedric, but once i saw a pic of a white HE dumped on some 19s and just had to get one:)
well HEs where pretty rare at that time so i settled on a black 94 HD, i was a second owner, it was amazing, loved it until it got stolen and munted.
But while i had my HD, i used to see a white HE lowered on some AMG's...well 2 years later i bought that HE, put 18s on it:) sold it 6 months later cause i went to uni, almost bought a s320 but it never happened, blown all my savings while studying.
so i was without a decent car for over a year until this green HE popped up and i had to get it no matter what:) and here i am:)i still miss that white HE, but since then i became mates with the guy i bought it off and simply im happy that i got rid of it lol:)he didnt rip me off or anything, but that car was slowly dying:)
and now im sitting here and dreaming about a w140 and not sure what to do, i love my sentia and dont wana sell up or swap or anything, i love how i get so many looks from people cause you dont see sentias that much...and pics that i have on here actually dont do any justice to it:) and it actually looks alot lower in real life too:)bt still not low enough for me.

i always been a big fan of huge cars(thanks to my dad)who always had benzes, bmws, audis, even had a limo at some stage(still have a video of me rolling up to 1st day of school in it lol)
and no matter waht i want a v8 as my next car, so either its a merc, or a nissan or a holden(must be a statesman)...but funds are limited because my job and recession dont go well together:(
i certainly dont want a commy cause everyone has one, and now my bro in law just got himself a VY maloo, lucky bastard and hes only 19!!wtf?:)thats not fair:)

well no matter what i still need to get the car back on the road before i decide which path to go...but i cant because of my broken toe...so i will have to wait...
