Welcome to my site regarding the restoration of my Mercedes-Benz 219 from early 1957. The restoration has taken some time and there's still some work to do but the site is at least updated ;)

I hope we can see some pictures of your work and the final result soon?

I hope so too ;). I tried to get some help assemble the car but that unfortunately failed. Now it's back home in the garage and I hope to be able to spend some weekends and the whole summer there. But if that's enough to get it out on the road this year is doubtful. But 2017.....

FYI, the site has moved to Not much has happened on the site since I'm trying to make some progress with the car instead :)

I can't find the photos. Was it deleted?

Welcome :)

That is impressive.

I'm spending a lot of time on both the restoration itself and the homepage :) Probably doing both of the things a bit too thoroughly so it takes sometimes to have the site fully updated...
