I see two potential paths to excellence with this next big W124 Mercedes-Benz 500E limo. The first is that you could drive as-is and provide the ultimate carpool experience for your coworkers, and the second option is you could pull that sweet 5.0 liter M119 V8 and put it into a 300TE wagon for a […]
A custom stretch limousine (like the ones that use the Lincoln Towncar as the chassis) are a dodgy proposal once they get 100k miles and 30 years on the frame. The workmanship of a custom car manufacturer isn’t horrible, but it is not the same as an OEM built classic. So if you want an […]
I know what you are thinking. Those DailyTurismo guys are hitting the bottle and are going to go on a W123 Mercedes bender. Again. Anyway, this next W123 is extra special because it is one of the rare long wheelbase (134 inch vs 110 inch for sedan) limousine, which is technically a V123. Betcha didn’t […]
eaders of this website will remember K-Cargate — which started when someone here compared driving a K-Car to purgatory, continued when the president of the Chrysler K-Car Club of America defended K-cardom in the comments, and wrapped up with an eloquent treatise on the Thin Line Between Hate and Meh by Kaibeezy. This was a long time ago, but I have to say that finally we’ve got a K-car that can redeem the brand and bring that feeling of Mehate to Melove.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; if you need a minivan, get a limo. You get seats for 8 people and none of the mind numbing styling and van handling that you get with the typical vanilla domestic market minivan. Granted, an 80s Benz 250S is not a Lamborghini, but it is certainly more interesting to drive than a Toyota Sienna. Plus, this one has an 80s vintage cell phone mounted up front and a stereo mounted where the rear passengers can control the tunes. Stereo controls in the back wouldn’t be annoying with little kids at all. Find this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 250S Limousine offered for $12,500 in Petaluma, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
If you are in the market for an interesting greater-than-five-passenger vehicle, the pickins are slim. Sure, you could get any one of a million big ugly modern SUV things or a minivan, but that is not fun at all. What you really need to drive is something unique, something that’ll have the other parents in the soccer practice carpool jealous of your sweet ride. What you need is a limousine. A big, long wheelbase, 8 seat hunk of German iron. Find this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 250L offered for $12,500 in Petaluma, CA via craigslist. Tip from Matt V.
I have a small family. Well…not so small…5 of us in total if you include the wife, which means that we fill any common sedan very quickly — which leaves limited space for friends, pets, grandparents, hitchhikers, clowns, etc. Full sized vans are cool, minivans are uncool…but I’ve always thought that a limo might be […]
If you were a well compensated Japanese executive shopping for a properly boss ride in the late 1980s, you didn’t have many domestic cars to pick from. You could get something imported like a Rolls Royce or a Mercedes S-Class…but many Japanese businessmen preferred to keep it local, perhaps with good reason. Find this 1988 Toyota […]
Limousine ownership is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. Requests to be a wedding chauffeur or designated driver will soon fill your weekends. Unless, that is, you get a limo simply too mangy and scary for everyone but only your best, most deranged friends to ride in. Seating for up to 6 of your […]
I am afraid that DT’s logo guru Kaibeezy has been stricken with some kind of nasty Neptunian virus — which causes among other things, the desire to drive a giant Cadillac land frigate — or perhaps the answer is simpler, and is that you just don’t see Caddys on Neptune, and absence makes the heart […]
