1992 300E Air Conditioning

The air condiotioning stopped working last summer and my mechanic told me that the freon is no longer even available and the cost to replace the AC system is prohibitive. I love the car and have kept in it mint condtion and am reluctant to part with it. Unfortunately, this coming summer I will need to drive during the day for business therefore I must have the AC working.

Any recommendations?

Sounds like you need to retrofit your AC from R12 to R134a. You want to shop around a bit. The retro fit on my 300SEL was about $300 or so. I had it done a few years ago.
