Out of the woodwork

I bought a '83 280 SEL with 100k miles on it last week, so I figured I'd register on Benzworld (as well as the Dutch counterpart mercedesforum.nl) at last.

I traded in my first MB a '87 250D (w124) in the fairly rare color 'willow green'). My girlfriend has a w201 in the same color. I've attached a picture of the two together.

In Holland driving a company car older than 15 years has some pretty good tax benefits. Next year these benefits are only available to cars over 25 yo, which is why I bought the SEL. That and the fact that I always wanted to have one...
