Advice Please

Dear Friends,

I could use your help. My father owned a 1970 Mercedes 220D for a number of years. He even added the large rounded fog lamps. I have some money burning a hole in my pocket. I have always liked the late 60's and early 70's mercedes. There is a certain elegance to the big grill square body sedan. As of late the 280se and 280sel have been turning my head. Let me state I would like to purchase this as a fun car. I already have two cars that are my regular drivers. What are the pro and cons of the six and the eight? I know they drink fuel, but what is the difference and what is the seat of the pants difference as well? I also would consider a 300 sel from that time frame as well. I also think the early 450sel look good as well. I am not even opposed to a 220diesel, but my Dad's was plug slow. What is the your considered opinion?

Thank you in advance for your help.
