Well, technically, I have not bought one yet....will be getting a 1978 450 SEL this weekend. I will be buying mine purely on sentiment. You see, as a kid, my father, uncles and all his friends had these cars. I was going to be different, no Benz for me.
I saw my father after a long hiatus and yes, he still had his 1978 Benz, it was still working. Shortly, I started looking at these cars, was looking for a 1972 280, came close to purchasing it, but it sold. I then stumbled across a 1978 450 owned by a lady whose husband passed away. She said they bought it brand new and she has all the records!!
I will be picking the Benz up this weekend.
