Hello all - I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong place. I am a newbie and want to get some advice from the experts here. I am interested in the vehicle described below but want to get your thoughts before proceeding. I am looking for a daily driver, but being a car guy, I want an awesome classic, and I think the 300SE fits the bill. My current DD is a '94 Land Cruiser, which I absolutely love. I recently changed jobs and will be driving much farther to work, about 30 miles, so I need something more fuel efficient than the 14 MPG I get withe the LC. Obviously, I am looking for more than a fuel efficient car, I love classics and want something that is not just an everyday ride. Anyway, any advice you have would be helpful. If you guys are anywhere near as passionate about the 126 as LC owners are about their rides, I know you will have great advice. Thanks in advance!

This car rides smooth, handles nicely, and has power to spare. I have restored it mechanically, and the body and interior are in very good condition for the age. This car has been a Virginia car since new and has no rust.
