Summer must be close

Yes, I know it’s been a while. Now that the hot summer months are around the corner I’m finding myself spending more time indoors and at my computer, so this blog will start to see some activity again.

I’ll start with some interesting pictures I took with my mobile phone last week. These pics are of two Mercedes R-Class and one B-Class pre-production vehicles in Dubai. I was surprised to see them still disguised with tape considering that both models have been publicly shown in production form several weeks ago. Anyway, here are the pics…click on the thumbnails to see larger versions of the images. Remember, these were taken with a phone so they aren’t the greatest, and the German-looking drivers weren’t trying to make it any easier for me as we zipped down the highway at 130 km/h (86 mph).
