    I'm a French Mercedes benz enthousiast living in Vendée, (between Nantes and La Rochelle) I bought ten years ago a R 129 320 SL year 1998 (one of the last with the straight six engine) and more recently a W 123 200 D 1977 who needs some TLC.

    Every year we use to organize a meet for R129 owners in June. Next year, as it's the 30th anniversary of our favourite car, we would like drivers from other countries to join us.

    I would be happy to talk with you about Mercedes Benz (as much as I can, my English is not perfect) and hope I will be allowed to advertise here all the details of next year's meet.

    Thanks for your reading.

    Hi and welcome! I also have an r129 (M119 variant) which currently lives most of the year in the Charente Maritime. I could well be interested in any meet up!

    Hi mimile and welcome to the forum. Your English is very good, far better than my French!

    From memory, I think you have to do something like 30/35 posts before you get access to Private Messaging.

    I can’t answer why you don’t see any pictures - try this thread which is full of pictures to see if it works:

    Bon soir mimile.

    Welcome to the forum.
    As above, you need 30 posts to be able to private message.
    Possibly the photos you are trying to view are broken Photobucket links.

    Thank you,

    Now, I can see the pics and click on the links, I don't know why it didn't work before. For the 30 messages, I'm going to look for the thread about the weather forecast... :D

    If you get addicted as much as many others do, you’ll have no trouble getting up to 30 posts!

    I think I'm starting to... However, for me, 30 posts are about 60 or 70 faults... As I write with a French computer, most of the words are underlined. How could I correct myself ? :(
