Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - LIVING WITH CLASSICS -

The big Benz has been win­ning friends and in­flu­enc­ing peo­ple again. The lat­est ad­di­tion to the S280’s long list of fans is John-Joe Vol­lans, the new ed­i­tor of our sis­ter magazine Mod­ern Clas­sics, who used it to head to the NEC and back for the Au­tosport In­ter­na­tional show. He loved its abil­ity to shrink the long drive across the Mid­lands, but not its in­creas­ingly jud­dery front brakes. It’s an­other job to sort on P772 LSR. DS The Puma needed a good clean. Strong winds had blown most of ru­ral Cam­bridgeshire onto the roads, giv­ing it a nice dirty sil­ver fin­ish that evolved into more of a matt black! Be­ing a small car meant that clean­ing it didn’t take long, but I did no­tice that the near­side door mir­ror felt slightly loose. The electrics aren’t 100 per cent, ei­ther – the ra­dio ran­domly turns it­self off, usu­ally when a good song is play­ing! JS
