My first Benz was a Blue, 1969 280SE Coupe, that I bought in 1979 for $12,000. What a cool car! Sunroof, chrome door pillars. But I sold it because it needed paint, and the parts were expensive (wiper motor - $180). Why didn't I keep this???
Next, was a Silver, 1987 420 SEL with about 100K miles that I paid $7500 for in 2001. A great road car, comfortable, fast, and hungry for expensive repairs and maintenance!! Sold that one and started buying the three that I have now. I'm keeping them!
