What was your first Mercedes?

I bought a used 1959 (or was it '57?) 600D. A really long wheel base car.

My current SLK350 is my first Mercedes!
It's also my first cabrio (or convertible if you prefer), my first 2-seater, my first car with engine over 2000cc and my first V engine!!!
Oh, and my first car that is not black!!!!!!
Quite a few 'firsts', don't you agree?

83 300tdt. It very likely is still on CA roads today. The odometer 3 years ago was showing 1/4 mil miles, but it didn't work, when I bought it
