Classic Merc

Those who know me well will be familiar with my penchant for classic cars. As I walked out of our gate this morning I found this beauty parked on the other side of the road.

It is a Mercedes-Benz 230.4 - dating from around 1974.

Now, old cars are a very familiar site on the streets of Cairo, but they are normally total wrecks. This on the other hand, was totally pristine. Even the interior, dash and seats seemed untouched by time - certainly not shot to pieces by the sunlight like every other thirty-five-year-old car here.
