Hey everyone,

I'm originally from Philadelphia, PA and I'm currently living in Seattle, WA. The 1999 Honda Civic EX Coupe that I drove across the United States three times got rear ended at a red light about two months ago and was totaled by the insurance company. First I got mad because of the collision, then I got sad because I had the car for 4 years, then I realized I can buy the Mercedes Benz 240D w123 that I always wanted!

Now I own a 1980 (I think) w123 chassis with a 1974 or 1975 616 engine from a 220D (I think). Long story short: I could have paid a lot less for this car than I did. Regardless, I expected there would be a lot of work needed for a car this age to run ship-shape. I have about 6 months to work before I drive home and return to university. Let the D.I.Y commence!
