Snapshot Sunday: Stretch Merc Limo


I came across this car in the Hobart suburbs some time ago and never got around to posting it. Years ago my boyfriend at the time took me out to dinner at the Adelaide Casino in one of these. I can’t remember if it was a Mercedes or not but it was fun to go for a ride in one instead of the boring taxi or public transport. We got dressed up and had a fancy dinner in one of the good restaurants and then we played the pokies and I won a hundred bucks which was a fantastic win back in 1995. This one looks to be from the 80s. I’ve taken a few shots of it from different angles. I remember the road being very busy at the time and I had a job to get across as there was no pedestrian crossing. It was equally hard to get back to my car on the other side of the road. What you do just to get a photo!

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
