I was recently driving in my 1987 300-E as i was proceeding through an intersection a pedestrian ran out in front of me and i abruptly braked to avoid hitting him withing seconds i was rear ended by another vehicle behind me at about 40 KM/hr the front of the for tempo was entirely demolished when i exited to assess the damage to my car i was most awestruck to find not even a scuff dent scratch or any manner of damage. When the body shop inspected the car they asked me if i was joking about the car being hit. The mechanic told me that there was no indication the car had ever even been hit. No frame no interior cracking on the bumper no scuffs on the exterior of the rear. I drove away untouched by the damaged ford. NOTHING BEATS THE QUALITY OF A W124 i also recently retired the car with a whopping 590,000km on the odometer.

That is an excellent mileage, I have a similar story too, instead it was a 1983 380SEL of a friend, it was rear ended at the same speed by an Astra, the whole front end was demolished, to the point that the radiator and battery were pushed back toward the motor. The merc had a broken rear light and a pushed in bumper but no chassis damage.
