Hi all New member

Prior to 1968 all "performance" cars that could corner and stop were uncomfortable and had bone jarring suspensions ie British sports cars or so I thought! I was 14 at the time. My Dad bought a 68 230 114 chassis and I was hooked. 4 wheel disc brakes, independant rear suspension, overhead cam engine etc. In 1968 these cars were light years ahead of everybody else. Even by todays standards they stack up very well. I have owned various models over the years. Some good, some bad. Some well engineered , some not. But the thing is ,when Mercedes gets it right,they are in a league of their own and all of us benefit. Kinda like a nikon! Anyway I presently own a 99 c230 Komp which I really like and have a 87 300E a daily driver Ive had a long time. A durable car ,well made, but Ive never been happy with the handling characteristics of the car.
