Introducing Janina

We won 1st prize Prix D’etat in the 2010 annual Mercedes Concours in Menlyn, Pretoria, with our new 1963  220 SEB Cabriolet.

1st Prize Prix D'etat

New  … 1963 … sounds a bit Irish but ’tis correct and we waited four years for her to be built.

PJ, my partner is a true disciple of the silver star – of the Mercedes Benz variety and it goes way back.  This particular story dates back to the 1970’s when PJ attended a car auction in Harare with his Dad and saw a similar cabriolet sold.  Very disappointed that his Dad was not the highest bidder when the hammer went down, and even worse still, the car was whipped away by men from far away Johannesburg.  He felt very let down and has carried the damage with him all these years – until now!
