On our recent trip to Germany, we had a very nice lunch with my 93 year young Aunt Ellie in a Hannover suburb, and I had the chance to look at her first owner 1976 W123 280 with only 71,000 original Kilometers.
The car has seen every scheduled service, is always garaged, and my in great shape for her age Aunt still drives the car.
The H on the left of the plate is for the City of Hannover, the H for historical on the end for is issued for cars in good running condition over 30 years old.
In Germany, cars designated historical can be driven a max of 7,000 Km a year, and the annual taxes and insurance are minimal.
Cheers

The car probably had seat and steering wheel covers from day one.
I would love to uncover the 'new' seats and see the car detailed.
I didn't notice dings, and the paint is still shiny.
It's just nice to see a car so well taken care of.
Cheers

And the gauge needles are still orange, not yellow from sitting outside.

A 93 year young gal driving a pristine vintage Benz? Just hope her reflexes are as sharp as her car is. DAYUM that's one clean vehicle. :thumbsup: :crybaby2:
