The Mercedes-Benz W114 showcased another stunning example of the classic 3-box styling envisioned by renowned designer Paul Bracq. While the majority of W114s encountered are the standard 4-door sedan variant, there are also a handful that sport the more sporty 2-door coupe spec. Today’s W114 is sitting on a set of gigantic wheels that are […]

In a world that is rapidly degenerating into a “nightmare buffet of artificially flavored, hyperpalatable, yet ultimately bare-marginally satisfying, pseudoabundance” (thanks Kaibeezy for the best description of the 21st century yet) it is nice to be able to find a car that presents itself with all of the things you need in a car and none of the things you don’t need. Umm, okay….there is some rust…that’s maybe something you don’t want, but the subtle & attractive styling, manual gearbox, unstained interior, and legendary W123 Benz durability is exactly what you need in a car for about $5k. No self driving, self braking, lane departure warnings, or tire pressure monitoring warning lights here. Find this 1978 Mercedes-Benz 280C offered for $5,300 in Salem, OR via craigslist.

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to see the third installment of the Fast and Furious franchise (Tokyo Drift), you might be interested to know how it really should have happened. High school kids being made members of the Yakuza…sure…but the idea of the kid’s hooker-loving dad owning that impeccable condition ’67 Mustang fastback in […]
The W114/115 chassis is the rugged 60s/70s era Mercedes-Benz E-class predecessor that is frequently a great deal for a cool classic. The W114 is often overshadowed by the fancier front end and stacked headlamps of the W108/109 chassis, but some prefer the clean and simple lines of the coupe version. Find this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280C […]
The Mercedes-Benz W114/115 chassis is the often overlooked E-class predecessor chassis that is overshadowed by the prettier W108/109 chassis. The big S-Class ancestor W108 with its fancier front end and stacked headlamps is a bargain classic, so the downmarket W114 is forced into an even more compromised market situation…bad news for “collectors” but great news […]
