I am trying to get a Mercedes Driver's club going.
Old Mercedes (w124 AND OLDER )owned or driven by DIY mechanics who need literature or parts etc.....
Offering project cars from 1953 to 1993...(rather than breaking them up for parts....)
the worst part about these yards is, that by the time you find out about a car there is no time left to get the parts off, or they're butchered by somebody else....sometimes 3-4 weeks turnaround...and they're gone...
I agree completely. I think my 1973 (1972?) 108 280 SEL 4.5 should go into the project car organization and be saved because it is rust free except for surface rust and the 4.5 runs nice and transmission goes forward real nice. No reverse and a cosmetic fixer.
Hey, did I sell or give you a fintail back window? Turns out I need a fintail front windshield cause I bought one with a busted one. I'm keeping the finnie... Looking forward to its arrival...
