In the movie, The Four Seasons, starring Alan Alda, etc, One of the characters drives a light blue 300D. At the end of the movie they drive it onto a frozen lake where it slowly falls through the ice. One of the saddest endings I've ever seen.
Last year there was a Shell Oil commercial (Wave of Change) running on TV with an '80's 300 TD wagon in it. Brief glimpse of a white wagon as it drives along the road. I tried to locate it on their site, but it is gone.

You can see a mid eighties (I think) 500SEC in the 1989 movie "Roadhouse" with Patrick Swayze. I think the Benz gets wrecked in the movie. On a positive note, he ends up buying the car in real life and repairs it for his own personal car. He apparently liked the car that much. (I was informed of this by Swayze's brother-in-law who I personally knew.)

There is a site devoted to Mercedes in the movies. They have a fairly good video of a scene in Ronin with a 6.9. It is awesome. The video takes a good while to load, unless you live near Australia. But it's worth it!
