Post I Love all mercedes before 1998

In fact, you have to read in title "I love MB until 1998 models" (Sorry)

Hello everybody,

If I post in here it's because I'm new on this site and I introduce myself

"Bellon", 32 years old
I live in France, Haute-Savoie and I'm not perfectly bilingual as you can read !!

I appreciate all "old cars" between 50's and 90's, with a particular affection for MB. Especially W116 (the first I saw when I was young), W126 and THE MB W140 (phase 1).

By the way, I'm actually looking for a 600 SEL but this models seems to be affected by electronics problems, so I'm waiting to have more informations, and that why i'm on this forum.

Thanks

Hi Bellon,
I bought my 1998 SL-500 in June 2007 and continue to enjoy it tremendously. It is a great car.

I also recently purchased a 2006 R350 because it was such a wonderful car with 4-wheel drive, only 13,500 miles (22,000 KM) on the clock, and such a wonderful price. It had been returned from a 2 year lease along with many other LEase returns so as to make the price be right for such a fine automobile. We envision using this R-Class Mercedes Benz for our Drive across the USA.

I appreciate a lot the "pagode", I enjoy the W129, I can't stand when I see a W107 and obviously the 300 SL...

Thanks @Full house, "read you soon"

Yes, you can be proud of your 500 SL, and the color fit it well !!

I remember when I was 14 years old, we were on hollidays with my parents at Salou (a town in spain on the costa dorada). We were in 1991 and all the day a SL-500 was cruising on the main road. Inside, 4 young peoples (about 20 years old) had fun !
The SL-500 was black...It was marvellous

Welcome! I have to agree with you, I too love the look of the older cars. They don't make em like they used to. Mercedes made in Alabama...? Just not the same feeling as one made in Germany eh.
