Mercedes 450 slc with bad exhaust leak. Exhaust caught in raised object. Time to fit the articulated wrists to remove this. 1 bolt missing hope it’s not sheared as it’s underneath and no room to drill out or get at without removing the head. Good job it’s the left side as it has some room for access. #classiccars #classicmercedes #vintagecar #irishvintage @ Athlone, Ireland ... See MoreSee Less

To all the people who shared and viewed my post yesterday about fraudulent web site using my name and business information. Thank you very much. The offending site was removed today regrettably the URL still exists. ... See MoreSee Less

I would like to ask everyone who views my posts or web site to please forward this to as many people as possible. A web site has been registered as Athlone Classics.com. All the information and pictures are of my business. They are trying to defraud people selling high value classics that don’t exist. They are saying the vehicles are for sale on my behalf. We repair and restore vehicles. We don’t sell vehicles. This came to light when a Dutch gentleman had questions about the contract of sale he received and contacted me for information. Please help me stop this and my business getting a bad name. Most of all save people being robbed of large sums of hard earned money. Thank you ... See MoreSee Less

Update. It WORKS!! I have a whole new news feed. I’m seeing posts from people I haven’t seen in years.
Here’s how to bypass the system FB now has in place that limits posts on your news feed.
Their new algorithm chooses the same few people - about 25 - who will read your posts. Therefore, I ask you all a favor so I can see your news feed and you can see mine.
Hold your finger down anywhere in this post and "copy" will pop up. Click "copy". Then go your page, start a new post and put your finger anywhere in the blank field. "Paste" will pop up and click paste.
This will bypass the system.
