Cool At last a W123 !!!

Having fallen in love with W123's in 1983 whilst holidaying in Tenerife (where every taxi driver had one) I finally brought a 250 W123 last month. I've been looking at a number of W123's for around 8 years but didn't want to rush in and buy anything that didn't tick all the boxes. It had to be 4 door, petrol, white, in totally original spec. and looked after since birth. It may have cost me more than I wanted but it's a dream finally fulfilled.

This link takes you to some pics if anyone wants to check out a 1980 vehicle that looks as good as the day it left Stuttgart:

250, 1980

I've always adored Mercs although a 190E W124 was a constant source of problems and never ending garage costs.

My day to day Merc is a W210 E240 that is a dream to drive.

Will I stay with Mercs? I'd like to think so although the shape of the exterior (and the very 'non Merc' look of the interior) may see me buying classics and trying to maintain them for many years to come!

Best wishes to all on this excellent forum.
