RE: Newer Mercedes Not as solid as before??
Regardless of the confusion about the fine line between durability, longevity, and passenger safety, which to me seem to be encompassed in all the pre-1987 model Benz's and which seems compatible with the Kelly blue book and NADA higher price values, I have to make the claim that my W110 series [1974 280S] is a tank and will put a hole in anything on the road today. That's when I say, "Ouch!" with a vicious grin.
