I like the idea of a performance model. Big engine, small car, manual trans. But wonder if the money is better spent on a S class Fintail or a W108.
Having had a few of each, I think my 63 220S is more fun to drive and more comfortable to sit in than any of the W108s I have owned. If you want a little more performance, I would consider a 220SE over a 230S, or an M130 transplant into any Fintail... But it is very difficult to get a manual transmission flywheel for a M130 in the United States...
