I had decided to buy a collector car a few years ago, yet I did not have a specific brand in mind. When my wife found the sec for $1800, I thought it was meant to be: I have loved Bruno's styling talent since I was young, the wife not only found the car but likes it too, and it had no rust. Happily enjoying a rolling restoration at this post.

The best diesel on the planet is the MB 5cy early 80's. I will be running my own home brew biodiesel in her. Esp w the cost of D2 at $4 a gallon & higher. BioD will keep her clean & lubricated, just what she likes!

Bought my 190e because we've had a Mercedes (300 SEL) for almost as long as I've been alive. It was a reliable car, but I wanted something smaller and better on gas. Been a good car to me.

MB 250D W124 1988

Hello to all of you ! Bought my own MB car a month ago . A second- 3rd ? fourth ? - hand 250D W124 from the year 1988 . Different reasons for that . A good opportunity because
1) Had to change my 24y/o Nissan Stanza
2) found that opportunity to get a Benz for cheap- at least compare to the price of a new one. Got it for 2.100 € ( +/- 2.700 USD).
3) ready to drive without any work to do on it :the yearly and compulsory " technical control's result is ok for one year till 2013/02.
4) engine works fine.
5) as nearly born in a Benz- got my driving lessons at the age of 9 with a MB 180D - anno 1958~ 1959, I was very pleased to get this one which will become also an oltimer next year ( = less annual taxes to pay ) .
You understand now why my answer is " other " or " various reasons " to the question " why a benz ? " .

I was always told that, in the Middle East, Mercedes Benz cars were taxicabs...the really cool car there was a DeSoto...maybe that was a long time ago...

My Wife's Grandfather always drove a Desoto, every 2 years he'd buy a new one. That's what they did here in the 50's. Desoto was the premier car made by Chrysler. They were tanks. Another great car that was made here in Warren, Ohio was the Packard. Their slogan was "ask the guy who owns one".
