Well, my '78 nonturbo 300D is a little slow for my tastes, but owning a Benz makes me never want to own anything else, so I was considering seeing if I could sell or trade my car for a nice late 80s 420sel. I don't know much about the 420 aside from the fact that it's a V8; could anyone tell me a little about them? I know they get poorer MPG than my car, but the price to fill it up is also significantly lower (I've been paying $3.38 per gallon lately:crybaby2 I'd like to get an idea of whether I'd be paying about the same amount for gas. How powerful are they? And, of course, is it a reliable car? I'm sure it has its little quirks like any old car, but I'm hoping to find a good daily driver.
