wow, that is amazing. look how clean the engine bay is. i would probably pay that much seeing the condition and knowing how long these cars last. imagine this car in 30 years with 300,000mi on it. you in your old legendary benz when people are in cars driving themselves passing life by.:crybaby2::crybaby2::crybaby2::crybaby2:

The Mercedes Motoring guy takes a pretty good low-mileage w123, puts a pile of money into it, and makes it into something near perfect. Then he takes the best pictures and sells them for top dollar. I love his website; more power to him.

Can't get over how immaculate this thing is. I wish I could see cars like these at dealerships being sold brand new, not what manufacturers are pumping out these days.

This is what I would like mine to look like when I'm done with it, though I doubt it will even be close.
