So we are walking back to our car and low and behold my car seems to have reproduced or something. I thought I was seeing double until I noticed the other 300D was not turbo and had cooler chrome cowls making mine jealous [:I]

So I got out the camera to take a few pics. The other 300D was in pretty good shape, just needed a wash. This is only the second w123 I have seen in person with my same paint color [:D]

That's why I try to always bring my camera along. Today I saw a wrecked W126...put it shortly, it was a sad way to start the day. But I was running late for school...[:D]

The chrome cowls might indicate an older model. Is anything missing on your car? Sometimes bad things happen. Nothing like that happened to me yet...[:D] but if something's missing you got his license #![:0]

Yep. Chrome cowls were used on the W123 300Ds from 1976 to 1982. The 1983 to 1985 models used black cowls.

This is the best I've had so far (1st week driving the car I saw it). It was up by the reservoir near my house. A week ago I saw the same car tailing me into my neighborhood but it took a left 2 courts before mine. I think I have a nearby friend, and a nice one too. A little dirty but a mighty clean interior.

Lovely! This week there were two W123s parked at school and another being driven by a lady. Next week is finals week so I might not be able to have much time to do so, but I'll take pics when I can! [:)]
