January 14th (14/365)
She was begging to be driven...so I drove her ;)
For the first Saturday in months, I was up super early. The light was great so I spent a half hour taking pictures of my car on my iPhone and Galaxy S5. I then headed out to meet a friend for breakfast. All before 1030am.
My car is known as The Dictator, a 1982 W126 SEL Mercedes-Benz. Weighing in at nearly 2 tonnes, and nearly 6m in length it is a long, luxurious barge with the turning circle of an oil tanker. But don't be fooled - the bonnet hides a V8 engine that loves the open road. She is my first car (It's 2017 - dictators are unisex). I love her. On the other hand, my girlfriend, Siri - hates it. She's probably jealous of the good looks and attention the car receives. She thinks I should sell it and get something more practical. We shall overcome.
The Dictator and other classics are going to be a regular feature in this Project365. Look away now if you don't like classic cars. :)
