Just a Sucker for W114 pre diving board bumper, green Coupes

Man..........don't know what happened. Found another green w114 coupe for sale in the local area. Fought looking at it for three weeks. Just couldn't stand it any more so..................went.................looked... ..........bought. just purchased a 1973 280C with a w110 motor and solex carb. It is a twin to my 1971 250C. except for the motor and those stupid power windows. Runs great, just needs paint and some interior refurbishment .....someday. My wife now gets the 250C show car and I get the 280C as my run around driver, which will, in a few years, I hope, be a show car as well.

I love the paler green cars in that body, so there is something for all of us and would look good in a convoy!
