Pristine 83k-mile W123 300TD, "Newport"

Newport the 300TD has to go. I will leave you with the eBay posting, which has an incredibly detailed description of all work done.
And yes, something got into my eye...



EBAY LINK: 1982 Mercedes 300TD
.

*Sigh*

-83k miles.
-Surfblau exterior, blue interior.
-Thousands in mechanical/cosmetic work done.
-Many unforgettable memories!



I will happily answer any ownership questions here at the forum.

Always excited to meet other MB enthusiasts anywhere in the world!

Thank you for your compliments! This car is the reason I started writing on my blog, www.thiseuropeanlife.com. If you go back to the very first post, you will notice that it actually starts with the trip to Pennsylvania to buy the little teardrop trailer. From there, I headed on a 20-day odyssey meeting MB people, mostly from PeachParts, but with a huge turnout from Benzworld at the end, in San Francisco.

I am currently writing from Oaxaca, Mexico, where I have taken another 300TD that is bound to make history in the most epic PanAmerican crossing ever told by a classic Mercedes owner. I would like to thank you all who have been following my travels in this blue wagon, and keep encouraging me to go on with my long (often motorized) journey.

One thing: if you know anyone from this forum who happens to live in Latin America, let me know! The fact that I am driving a different car does not mean that I don't want to continue meeting amazing member after amazing member!

Always excited to meet other MB enthusiasts anywhere in the world!
