bgalakazam: thank you for the kind words. She photographs well. Unfortunately, a close up inspection will reveal her slight flaws; which will keep her out of the show circuit. However as a driver, I love her......I can't think of a better investment that provides happiness for myself and to those giving me a thumbs up on a daily basis. I am shocked how many people, both young and old, will stop to tell me "nice car" or to give me a brief history on how their grandpa or uncle had a similar car. Many are shocked to learn of the relatively "inexpensive" initial purchase cost...thinking a W108 would be in the tens of thousands.

Being a newbie to the classic auto world in the bay area, I would love to learn of meets, gatherings and/or shows within the area where other Benz enthusiasts gather. Any leads would be most helpful.

Thank You

Thumbs up

SF 108 your car is beautiful, I think we have met before on another thread. I just purchased a 71 280s, and in the process of getting it on the road, body and interior is quite nice but I still need to replace hoses then flush it out just to get it rolling(has been sleeping for 14 years). You have inspired to get my arse into gear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1980 Mercedes 300SD W116

My 1980 Mercedes 300SD W116 265k Miles
I'm the second owner daily driver and have had it since 2009. Other than expected maintenance I recently had the blower replaced for the heater 700 bucks ouch!
I will be doing the transmission filter and oil replaced next week. The previous owner did it around 100k so it is time.

This tends to be more of owner's personal cars, but why not start a new thread in the forum for factory cars? I'm sure many of us would enjoy them. Thanks and looking forward to seeing what you've got.
