1) Service it regularly
2) Detail it inside and out to keep it looking its best
3) Store it inside during the winter and use the VW instead

What is this "winter" you speak of? We're having high temps in the 80s on Thanksgiving Day. I like living where the W123 can be a 12 month car. :p

if it's in good shape, you can drive it all year round.. they weren't designed for good weather only. Ok, ok.... I won't drive my 83,000 mile CE with salt on the ground!

Winter wheels

Nice GTI... Soooo fun to drive

Yup. This one has a twin-cam too...

Last week I bought the 240D as a winter car. Plans changed when I discovered there was no rust on the thing...hence the VW. It has no rust either...
