Vintage W-body photo thread - most pics fixed and lots of new pics

Recommended Posts

Okay, this thread is for photos of W-body "back in the day" on dealer lots, on transport trucks, even vintage street scenes of when the early Ws were new even if they are in the background. I'd like to focus on first gens here but second gens are old enough to qualify. No recent pics please. To give some examples:

Would it be a good idea to make this thread a sticky?

What about adding a history/origionality section on the forum?

Just some thoughts I have conidering how old these cars are getting.

As I remember this picture had to been taken in the late 90s. This was my families 1997 GTP. It looks pretty new in the pictures, and I look young as well.

Nice post. I'd love to find a pic from asc/mclaren with a large group of tgp's on their lot similar to the Grand National one that exists. I'm betting someone working there or living near there took such a picture.

 

Not a bad idea to start snapping pics at new car lots for future generations of car nuts to enjoy.

They aren't great photos, but you can see a row of 2nd Gen GP's in these photos that the guy took of the 98 Daytona 500 Pace car with the MPD F1 package

Can see a 1st Gen Cutty sedan in the (I'm assuming) used lot of the Pontiac dealership
