Because diesels up the cool factor.

I immediately thought of a VW Brasilia when I saw that rear end.

Ahh... I hadn't realized that.


Slow and loud?

While the OM617t engine that showed up in the '78-'79 W116 was hardly a rocketship, it really couldn't be considered either slow or loud. On the other hand, the OM621 in the Heckflosse I'm currently working on is definitely a solid hit on both adjectives.

It's a matter of comparison, certainly a lawnmower with its muffler removed is both slower and louder.

Better mileage: if you put a gas motor of equivalent power in, I bet it wouldn't be too different. Right?

Premium fuel is usually about the same prices as diesel and on older cars you can eliminate the need by retarding the ignition.

Easier to maintain: ok. I don't know enough to argue either way on this.

No smog: I guess that's a California thing as cars this old typically don't have any smog stuff anyway.

I would have assume there'd be some "bio-diesel" comment about maybe free fuel.

I personally wouldn't mind a diesel that tops 30 mpg, but my understanding is that the oldest benzes that are really good at that are a w201 190d and the recent bluetec or late 90's e-class diesels. I've often thought of looking at 70's-80's e-class or s-class but it seems that there isn't enough fuel economy reward to make them cheaper to drive than my 2006 17mpg average, 13-20mph Honda Ridgeline.

I'm still in search of how to build my dream car. I think it's in my signature, something like a stick/overdrive convertible that can seat five. Diesel was just never on that list, and I guess I don't understand why it might have to be on someone else's list of dream features. ... Runs on free French Fry oil sounds reasonable though.
