Hopefully someday.
I am certain. Recent sales of 300CDs (turbo diesel) with less than 150K miles are in the range of $11,000 - $15,000.

w126 coupes, 190 E 2.3/2.6, 500E, 560sl, i reckon these are semi-classic status already.

as for newer models the only one is the CL class, i can't imagine any model made after 92 will be remembered in 40 years. but that's only my opinion.

I'm trying to keep my 1992 400E mint and maybe one day I'll get those vintage license plates. I think the 124's have a classic styling and seem to be better engineered then some of the newer models.
