Y E S! !!!!

hiya ace789 -
is it allowed to run the car with that very unsecure (HA!!) bumpers in the states? and what's about the not-sealed-beamed lights??
after all she's a real beauty, esp. with that colour. rry to find tinny wheelcaps for her. that would make her PERFECT - imho.
greetings from where the star was born.

hiya nutz -

any doubts to find me here sooner or later?? ;) sure i follow you fellow W116ers everywhere! as long as your honorable mr. president remains in LINCOLNs...

grazie mille for copying my pics. i guess, i'm just too old for this electronic- and cyberstuff. i'm left from the mechanical era... otherwise I(!!) would have bought YOU TUBE!!! btw. lots of nice MERC videos. my favorite: a british W124-"test" to prove how solid an old MERC still is.

one more: since SEPT. i'm member of the official S-CLASS-CLUB (the former W126-club). on the homepage (ENGLISH version avble.) you find a lot about "our" ladies. esp. on the "member's"sites!!! yesterday i watched all the commercial videos (mol 1h) from that time. how lovely!! the music, the suits, the hairdo...

greetings to ANCHORAGE, where we might have mild californian climate 200 years ahead, if we go on living this way...

HANS

@nomada - ref. to TomiT's paint:

oh yes, indeed it is! the W116 was painted with so many devine, adorable colours. you'll find them all here:

www.s-klasse-club.de

stay with the GERMAN version (black-red-yellow flag-symbol)! don't go to the ENGLISH one. because the W116 doesn't exist there for unknown reasons. so choose the german flag, go to "Der W116" and then on the left to "Farbvariationen". that means variations of colours. i think the rest is self-explaining. point at the colour's name and a picture is shown.
or go to:

www.astralsilber.de

there you find pictures too. (>Farbcodes on the left). it's just (??) the W123. but the colours were the same.

or go to:

www.meinbenz.de

also pictures under Farbtabellen on the left side.

I just acquired a 1980 300SD and really like those deep dish rims. What model rims are those and what is the bolt pattern. In shopping for rims, what do I need to look for as far as what will fit my car?

THX chaw ...

actually it's what i love on this very car.

the extremely simple version on one hand (no metallic colour, no alloys, no leather or volour, no coloured windows, no el. windows) and the luxury on the other hand (automatic, frontlight-wipers, el. sliding roof PLUS climate control PLUS extra heating, headrests and belts and reading-light in the back, stronger front-seats,...) - which all was only available on extra costs and very, very, very expensive that days!

the secret is, that she was an official gouvernmental car in her first life.

if the major of washington is also gouverneur of washington dc., you could compare it to the major of bremen, who is also gouverneur of bremen state, one of the 16 federal states of germany. the difference is just, that bremen is not our capital. at least it's the US-seagate to northern continental europe.

every february there is an "oldtime-cars"-exhibition and -fare in bremen (coincidently!!). i hope, i can show her next year there with the (official MB-)"s-class-club".

keep your fingers crossed, please!! :)

Car was keyed all the 360 degrees - purchased like that. I will be changing my licence plates just in case. 1976 450SE with 71,015 miles.
my benz is getting a repaint and found some rust on the car!!! got jinxed I guess. in the trunk area. apparently water was getting past the seal and the grommets in the floor were dirty and water sat there for too long. I am going to cut it out (both sides) and fiberglass it instead to avoid future problem repetition.

here's a video of the before. I will post new pics with what I am doing in the trunk to include the sound system.

wish me luck.

last summer i had a small accident which made me change the head light lenses (euro spec). had them mailed to greece (where i live) from bosch germany, they were something like 90 euros each. all i can say is that its better to find the whole headlight second handed (which i found for about 80 euros in athens) rather than pay same amount just for the glass
