Traveling to Calif. & purchasing a Mercedes, Model?

Hi,<br> I going to Calif. from Wisconsin to attend my nephews wedding in August. I went to college and lived in Calif. most of the '80's. At that time I purchased several older M.B.'s,i.e., 280se, 450sel, 230 also had a BMW as well. Since I'm going out there I want to drive something back. When I do a search for a MB in the San Francisco area I'm finding mostly 190's, 380se, 190D, 300e and 500sel in my price range. I don't want to spend too much. Since I've been out of the MB used market for so long, is there any models from the early to mid '80s that I should stay away from? I'm open to a diesel since I have two GM's that I drive regularly, otherwise my wife and I drive his and hers Volvo 240's. Thanks for all your assistance. Bill

you can not go wrong with a diesel car, 82 to 85 300td or sd the others are have no pick up. you can also look at the 92 s500 or 420 , the 300 is a six cyl and the car weight to much for the engine. , very reliable car .
