Believe it or not I've even seen some blue cars with red interiors. Go figure.

Nope, it's not just you, I think it's a hideous combination.

How much do you think I could sell it for? It runs very good, does not use any oil or coolent. I was thinking of selling it because I want a newer style car like a 190E or a 300E. What do you guys think?

You should hold on to your W123. The newer cars don't have the proven reliability record of the W123.
I'll second that!
Here's a list of Mercs I've had and their problems
'81 W123 200 (2 years) - No problems
'84 W123 200 (6 years) - £10 fuel pump
'82 W123 230CE (7 years) - £180 exhaust centre & back box, £40 brake discs
'73 W115 230/6 LWB (8 years) - £3 carb. gasket, £15 speedo cable
'61 W111 220SEb (5 years) - £34 clutch slave cylinder, £78 rear shocks
'96 W202 C180 (6 months) - heater broke, ABS problems, SRS problems, engine noise
'95 W124 E220 (6 months) - airflow sensor, SRS light randomly comes on, faulty throttle body, headgasket

The C180 and E220 were both cars with full dealer history and lowish mileage (under 100,000) were the 200s and 230/6 had little or no service history and reached almost 200,000 with no problems. However because of the computers simple things like idle speed is something you can't adjust yourself making DIY maintenance impossible and now the headgasket has gone theirs only three garages within a 20 mile radious who will/can do the job but their booked up until mid August!
