Survivor Style: 1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D W123
This next car comes from Jim H who writes; You guys love these. Yes, guilty as charged. But who wouldn’t love a cream colored W123 beauty with a manual gearbox, manual roll-up windows and a super MB-tex interior. It would be nice to have the extra cylinder found in the 300D version or a turbocharger…but the non-turbo 240D engine will outlive the AI that will eventually turn us all into soylent green, so I approve of this next car. Find this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D offered for $6000 in Wilbramah, MA.
From the seller:
cylinders: 4 cylinders
paint color: yellow
title status: clean
This is a great vehicle, be noticed when you arrive in your Benz. New brakes, shocks, tires, exhaust, air conditioning and all mostly all originaal and in good working condition. Sunroof, radio, etc. Never been hit, in storage most of its young life, only 220k miles. Engine is a strong diesel, 4 speed. Looking for best offer near $6K.

0-60 in… (crickets chirping)
I love these. But you knew that already.
Speaking of the ai that will annihilate us, my friend argues that it won’t be on purpose, more like a cat video sorting algorithm that goes horribly wrong.
