The Artist: Even before he won his first County Art Prize at the age of eight, Paul Karslake was immersed into the Art World. Paul's father, Mike, was a renowned architectural model maker. From Mike, Paul was taught business ethics, form and perspective - attributes so lacking in many of today's working artists. Paul travelled to the United States in the late 1970s for what he imagined would be a three week holiday; he ended up staying four years! Soon after arriving in America, Paul was working for Los Angeles Art Studios, CBS Television and Disney, with whom, years later, he was to work on the Euro Disney Project. In 1990, the Wiggins Group Plc. commissioned Paul to produce a 650 ft. long artwork hoarding for their South Quay site in London Docklands for which he was awarded The Evening Standard Environmental Award. In the same year, he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (F.R.S.A.). Under the guidance of Derek Johns, ex-Director of Sotheby's and Old Master dealer in St. James's, Paul decided to further strengthen his ties with the Fine Art market. In 1995, he undertook a commission for some very large still life paintings for the restaurant that became Gordon Ra
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a luxury saloon and was officially introduced in 1972 succeeding previous Mercedes-Benz models dating back to the mid-1950s. As the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the S-Class has debuted many of the company's latest innovations, including drivetrain technologies, interior features and safety systems (such as seatbelt pre-tensioners). The W220 S-Class was completely restyled in 1999 with a body that was slightly smaller and lighter than its predecessor. As with each new S-Class, the W220 brought in new innovations such as Airmatic air suspension and Active Ventilated Seats (which used miniature fans in the seats to move air through perforations). Originally registered on 16th June, 2004, this S500 can only be described as 'brand new'. It has only covered 17,750 miles and has been, garaged, chauffeur driven and tucked away for a long time due to the previous owner's work commitments. That previous owner is the legendary actor, comedian and signer, Michael Crawford. Mr. Crawford best known for playing the hapless Frank Spencer in the popular 1970s British sitcom, Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em (which made him a household name) but was later famed in the t
1994 Mercedes Benz S500 C 5.0 V8 Automatic 146,242 miles ( on the clock, please see below ) 12 months MOT Thank you for looking at our auction for our beautiful Mercedes Benz. This vehicle was purchased by us approximately 18 months ago with the intentions of getting it back to its former glory. However due to being very busy with many other projects the time has come to sell this truly wonderful car on. Exterior: Unfortunately it has suffered some corrosion to the arches which has caused the paint to blister, however, the arches are still in-tact and just need treating and re-painting. The front drivers' side wing does have a rust hole however as can be seen in the picture. There are some scuffs to the front and rear bumper that will also need painting, but the main part of the car is very presentable. The glass on the car is double glazed.... yes double glazed! You wouldn't believe how quiet and sumptuous this makes it! Interior: The interior is in great condition, leather is in good condition with no rips or tears. Dash trims etc are present with no major marks. The stereo has been changed for a Sony Xplod and is working. Climate control is working, Air Conditioning may need re-gassing though. Electric seats and headrests all work and the first aid kit is present behind the rear seats. The seat belt assist works ( passes you the seatbelt when you get in) and is actually quite useful in this. Mechanical: We have just put the car through an MOT so now has MOT until August 2017. The gearbox changes smoothly, engine purrs beautifully and has benefited from having new plugs, leads and distributor caps. The catalytic converters have been cleared as they were badly broken and blocking the system. When we got it the fuel gauge and temperature gauge weren't working, this was down to a faulty dash unit. The original is sold with the car and shows it's mileage before it was changed which is approx 125,000, the current dash was fitted while the car has been off the road so has not done any mileage since this change. The only thing that isn't working properly is the intermittent function on the wipers. I believe it could be down to the park position switch inside the motor. Overall: These cars are getting collectable and this will make a fine example with a little bit of TLC. These were very expensive cars new and the luxury of it still shows! We have tested everything to the best of our knowledge but it is advised that you come to view the car yourself to ensure you are happy with what you are buying. ). Unfortunately, there is no service record with the vehicle. The numberplate pictured is sold with the car and adds a nice touch. I have the V5 in my name ready for the new owner and delivery is available upon request, please contact us prior to listing end for a price. more pictures available here: http://www.whitewallclassics.co.uk/mercedes-s500-coupe.html £1,695 ono If there is anything else you require please contact us via the following: e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on: 07534 471429 / 01239 613287
