    Hi,

    This 6.9 showed up on one of our one day tours last year. It overtook me near a curve. I remember being blown away by its passing power. An absolutely awesome car.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the compliment. Here are just a couple more pictures to round out a day of fun and raising funds for the quake victims. What better way to enjoy your car. This 280 S from our Mercedes club travelled to Berlin and back (14,000 km) for the 125 year celebration of Mercedes. I should mention, totally trouble free.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    This cool Unimog showed up at our event. The owner is well known for going on long off road treks with it. I really enjoyed talking with him and listening to his experinces.

    As a BMW guy (first and foremost) with an E28, I'm loving this!


    COOL! (no other words to describe it!)


    Edit: I was i Pakistan a few weeks ago (Lahore). At a traffic jam we encountered a long line of classic cars driving in the other direction, so unique in the landscape of Corollas, Daihatsus and Civics. Saw tens of aircooled VW Beetles, lots of 60's and 70's Americans, tens of classic Merc's in all kind of conditions and sizes. Pretty damn cool that some people down there take care of those cars, because parts are not accessible nor cheap (in terms of average guys income).
    I enjoyed the sight so much that I didn't bother to take cell phone pictures... Awesome.

    Salam Saman,

    Let us know when you are in town. We have some nice events planned after winter hibernation.

    This is a follow-up event we held on September 21, 2012 for the Azeri quake victims. It was a joint project with the Raad Rehabilitation Complex, an organization dedicated to teaching handicapped people work skills so that they can stand on their own feet. They have been remarkable in their success, and many companies come recruiting.

    They have been granted NGO status from the United Nations. The event raised funds both for Raad and the Quake victims.

    It was a great success with nearly 3,000 visitors. Part of the show was in the Courtyard of the complex where we displayed some of the cars which were there on a long term basis. Outside, we had a 'Cars and Coffee' type event where owners could show up with theur cars, stay as long as they wanted and then leave. As a result, we had about 150 cars coming. Some stayed for an hour some stayed the whole time (10 am to 10pm).

    The main purpose was to join a good cause while enjoying your car as well.

    Here is a picture of one of the first arrivals at around 9am as we began to set up.

    Enjoy !

    Hi,

    This Capri is still weraing its original paint. It was bought from the original owner last year who bought it in Germany and drove it to Iran. One of my favourites.

    Hi,

    Around 10 Am the event begins to take shape. As you can see we had everything from Bricklins to Chevy's and everything in between.

    The Guys at Raad did a fantastic job and the event was very, very well managed. Nobody was lacking for anything, whether it was boxed lunches for the owners who opted to stay or free bottled water for those who brought their cars (Tehran was still in the tail end of the summer heat).

    Enjoy,

    Hi,

    This 170 Diesel caught my attention. The owner is a well known collector and is currently restoring a 190 SL and a Corvair. Talk about diversity in taste !
