Tiffany Twisted: 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E
The W124 was arguably last well built and reliable sedan to come from the mad scientists in Stuttgart with classy styling, interiors built to last, and simplicity in function that in future generations was replaced by a dizzying array of electronic gizmos that constantly fail. The styling of the W124 was aged much better that the googly eyed W210 that replaced it, and today’s example has a body kit that makes the car look lower and cooler. It might only have the lowly 2.6 liter M103 inline-6, but it is smoother and it’ll give you less grief to maintain that one of the V8 versions.

Clean lightly modified Mercedes 260E. Great for the highway, great for cruising. Would make an awesome 500E clone or Hammer clone, just drop an LS in it. Drives well. As safe and well built as cars get. Open to trades.

I remember a comment on these from long ago… here? Anyone remember?
