    For the past few months I have been having an overwhelming urge to ditch the Mach in favor of a pre 1985 mercedes w123 diesel..

    Should I be worried???

    I don't think that benz is worthy - but check out the 1986-87 AMG Hammer - now THAT would be an awesome ride to have.

    I do like that alot.. I bet it is impossible to find one! The w123's in my area go for around 2k. And for 2k you get near bullit proof reliability. Maybe is would make a good dd and I could garage the mach..

    I know.. I think about selling it from time to time for something else. But as soon as I see it I think differently..

    I used to own a 1979 280E , second owner straight from Germany. Inline 6. Bought it off my 6th grade math teacher... And I must admit - it was a fun little car to have. Got a lot people to look as you just don't see them that much.
    (or at least not in the area of Michigan I was in at the time).

    But I agree - keep the Mach, pick up a MB for a fun DD. Drop it on the ground an have some fun with it.

    Maybe I have lost my mind..

    Haha. Sometimes I want something that isn't such high maintenance.

    A 80s Mercedes would be less maintenance? To me that spells the opposite? Especially a diesel.

    I'm not too familiar with that era of Mercedes, but old luxury cars don't spell cheaper and better to me. Especially the 80s .

    I could probably understand it if we were talking something with AMG on the end of it but an 80s diesel? I think I know of a nice black one here locally if you really want too I will buy it and trade ya for the mach.

    I don't know what has gotten into me with those w123's.. I wouldn't sell my machine souly to get one. However I think they would make a good dd.

    This is exactly what mine looked like, but i had some slick Michelin white walls on it and mine was quite bit cleaner. But still a fun ride for what it was
