I can't decide which to be more impressed with, the SR, the seat layout in the SR, your mancave, or the car.

I'd like to know what the car is...

It's a Mercedes 230 CE W123 series (Coupe) 1985.

As you can imagine, I live in the man cave.

There's probably a Pirelli calendar on the other wall, along with a portable gas heater, dart board and a jar of chocolate hobnobs.

Nice boat. Recognised the Merc from the tell-tale chrome mirrors and window trim.
