Pushing your W123 to its limits

Since alot of you have already owned your W123 for years and even since new, what do you have to say about its handling?

Here are a few things I have observed. Once too often my car has caught me by surprise when it proved to me that you can push it and still would remain confident and perform that maneuver conservatively. I don't mind that its high center of gravity will induce pronounced body roll. For some reason it does things so confidently as if to say "Don't worry, leave it all to me." Also, when in heavy rain I noticed the weight of the car helps alot when you hit a large puddle of water at speed.
