Thank you all!

I must say it feels pretty good for my new pride and joy to win ROTM. I just love the car and how it looks, and it's nice to know that others appreciate its good looks too.

There were a lot of great looking cars in this competition, it must have been a tough choice for everyone voting as they are all worthy.

Thanks to everyone who took part, all entrants and voters alike, and to Jeff for coordinating this fun contest.

Haha, no way! I did wonder if there might be someone on here who knew the car. Small world!

If I'm right, that subframe work needed done not long after you bought it? I remember piecing together the history before I bought it and thinking that was bad luck for the person who had just bought it!

The Mercedes pic at that angle next to the water is one of the coolest pics I ever seen.
It's a wall hanger.
Beautiful car and congrats.
