Keeping a Mercedes for 20 years is the stuff of fantasy.
In any event, you want the E-class, the taxicab of Germany. (You can't get a B-class)
Problem is, the USA versions will have 6s while the taxi drivers use those with 4s.
Problem with the 1980s models--besides the fact they're likely worn out and could very easily have been assaulted by a "greasecar" conversion--is that they are fuel hogs. You'll get better fuel mileage with today's gasoline cars, but today's diesels are something else again.
