    It's a Mercedes circa 1960's I think but the model escapes me:).

    someone will be along soon with the rest I'm sure.:biggrin:

    Mercedes Benz but I would place it earlier at a 1950's model. By the sixties mercedes had started doing their blocky design style. The one that it most closely resembles is a siz cylinder "Ponton" W180 model.

    Certainly a Mercedes and I'm fairly certain it's the very rare "Hedgerow" model. Sorry, maybe this should be under the (very) bad jokes thread!

    My young son is really into classic cars and he reckons its a Mercedes Ponton.

    He's dead right. If you do a Google image search from the UK site you'll find that very image in the first page. I'd link to the website, but one of the members there has a very inappropriate avatar :eek:

    So, having answered the question, what's the reason behind the question in the first place?

    I have done a painting of the photograph and I plan to enter it into an art competition. The competition requires a title so I thought it would be best to use the car name in some capacity. 'Brum brum in bushes' came to mind but I can see the serious art critic not taking that one too well. Plus there's a $4000 first prize so I want to get it right!

    Thank you for all your responses. You've all been a big help! :tup :D
