Let's celebrate how far we've gone in our W123, C123 and S123 ownership by posting a couple of photos (or videos) of how our cars looked like back then when we first acquired them, and how they are now with all the restoration work, upgrades, repairs, etc.

You can also include a link to the build thread if you have one (or a site that has your documented progress). Please also add a brief description of what has been done in between.

My 240D started off as somewhat of a pile but it's now a reliable daily driver. Still needs a few things here and there but otherwise it's become a nice solid car.

When I got mine 2 years ago it had been sitting in a field with an old Volvo and a tractor with other old Mercedes.

All I did was wash and polish it.







2 years later.
