    Default I have the "Oldie" addiction bad!

    Could not resist, '79 Mercedes 280S. Only 119000km's, original first aid and toolkit! She has the softest ride I have ever experienced, gracious and solid.

    Those S class models together with the 123 series must be some of the best built cars ever sold. But man the fuel consumption on that 280S is also something!

    Is she rust free as well?

    Not a blemish on her paint, no rust. I had to buy when I saw her. Fuel consumption is really not that bad...4 barrel Solex carb is a dog when worn. This one is sweet, only had to adjust the accelerator pump slightly.
