      @veloopity: Its actually my 190D 2.5 l from 1988. In those days Mercedes built vehicles that could be taken apart and repaired without electronics controlling everything or having to plug it into a computer. I have a friend who helps me as otherwise I'd be lost!! The other practical aspect is that the motor runs on cooking oil so I can even claim to be very "green".

      Just so you know : i used this picture for a technical article i wrote in French about Java's relevance in modern web technologies, using cars as an analogy with web techs.
      Your picture is supposed to illustrate how developers attempt to fix those technologies and make them evolve through time.
      You were credited as "Axel D" in the article, with a link on your flickr account ; please let me know if you wish to be credited otherwise.

      Thank you very much ! :)
