OT: For the ladies out there...

...my wife custom makes jewelry from old typewriter keys (they are taken from typewriters which are "beyond repair") and I said "make some for the old car people" so if anyone here wants one you can go to her site www.hautekeys.com

I apologize in advance for posting a shameless self promotion, but seeing how the bracelet is for an '82 240D I felt it wasn't totally inappropriate

She informed me she can make up cufflinks, you just need to be patient as she has to order the fittings for them.

Talking Historic data that many members don't know.

Perhaps she can find a wrecked MERCEDES BENZ Typewriter.
