Vintage Forum Models Covered

Q: What's a "Vintage" Mercedes Benz?
A: Essentially any Mercedes Benz made before ~1976.

Q: Why?
A: Because:
- the 1977+ w123 (240d, 300d, 300ce, 300td etc.) and all later sedans have their own sub fortunes here on Benzworld where you can get better assistance in those forums. Please see the Sedan forums.
- the w116 and r/c107 chassis start in 1973 and 1971/72 respectively, but were a d-jet until 1976, and we cover d-jets fairly well here. If you've got a k-jet, definitely go to the correct forum for your chassis.

I would like to work on compiling useful threads on the various models covered well here, including:
- w114/115 "/8" Stroke 8 vehicles
- w108/109 250se 250s 280s 280se 300sel etc.
- w111/112 and w110 or any Fintails
And some day get enough information compiled on other models we see less of around here:
- w113 pagoda SL cars
- w121 190sl and Pontons

Hopefully we can also get around to compiling information on the various engine families and fuel systems.
- d-Jetronic
- mechanical injection pump systems
- zenith and solex carbs even conversions

All contributions are encouraged and appreciated.

My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
