I joined the forum to bone up on W 123s I was considering, and have enjoyed the experience. I am about to pull the trigger on one of two I'm considering after a couple of months of looking, so I reckon I'll be back frequently.
I currently own six cars, but none is a Mercedes (though two are from, um, Bavaria). Recently I decided I want an old Mercedes (trust me, I have proven over and over that I cannot resist anything that complicates my life). I had an 83 W 123 in the 200 series when I lived in Egypt some years ago, and it was the perfect car there, since it could nudge or bump its way through Cairo traffic and come out looking pretty well the same. I am guessing I will not do all that much nudging and bumping here in the Washington, DC area where I now live, but you never know.
Thanks to those of you who have been of help without knowing it (I read your knowledgeable posts) and to those who have responded directly to me.
