  9. 9. My Mercedes-Benz ‘W 113 was nick-named ‘Pepper’ by my daughter in 1964. This was one of the first cars delivered into Transvaal province of South Africa and it’s been in my family ever since. It’s pretty much the only car my family ever talk about”. Fred reckons because of its hardtop roofline, it is one of the most beautiful cars ever made. “Over the years I got into a hobby of buying nice samples in need of restoration, having them restored to the highest standards, and enjoying them before moving to the next one. Having learned from his mistakes the first time around, he set himself the objective to restore a good base car with the highest possible standards and complement it with upgrades, some nowadays very difficult to obtain, to improve comfort and reliability, making it the most beautiful Pagoda to look at and enjoy driving everyday. His other “Pagoda” was one of the last 830 280SLs built in 1971 for the US market, automatic, fully loaded with heating rear window, the chrome strips on top of the hard top to put on the luggage rack and a complete toolkit.’ Fred van der Merwe2
