Proud owner of an E240 (W210) and also finally, the car I have dreamt of owning for years - an immaculate white Mercedes 250 (W123)
I initially fell in love with W123's
back in 1983 - at the time, I think every taxi owner in Tenerife had a W123 300D.
Having searched for years for a low mileage, immaculate and original W123
(in white) I finally purchased one last Friday. It's seriously a very real dream that has come true after 26 years!!
For anyone that adores old Mercs and hasn't yet booked a holiday I would recommend Cyprus. Not for the Country itself (it's really not that good and very overpriced since entering the Euro) but just to take trips in various models of Mercedes from the 80's.
Fortunately, EVERY taxi I saw/rode in throughout a 2 week stay was a Mercedes......the Cypriot drivers adore their Mercs rather than the Skoda Octavia
that seems to be the ever increasingly popular set of wheels used by European Taxi drivers.
Do you want some pics?
Best wishes to everyone.
