If only they built them like that today! That's why we all bought them in the past.

Those links have been on this forum several times already, but it is still a good reminder.
I used to drive 124 body and sold it at the time, because I needed wagon.
Lately, having already 210 wagon, I bought older 210 sedan.
Even the 210 is not bulletproof as 124, but I really appreciate better leg room, ride comfort, dual clima control and some other gadgets.
As far as I am concerned my 97 E300D with 230,000 miles has at least 10, very likely 25 more years to go.

I can't watch any more than the first clip. So sad they should do that to a wagon. Oh well, it proves a good point.
