What car would it be?
Ha, I just spent a pot of money betting that it's going be my baby blue 240D with the rebuilt engine! Every time I stop in at Bearing Service I ask whether he's built any more W123 engines... nope, so far I'm the last.

- '79 240D - engine swap complete! Engine broken in! 28-31 mpg! Lovin' the ride!
- '86 190D (W201-126) - 2.5 NA engine, 5 speed, cloth interior, manual climate controls, 33-34 mpg (sold to forum member).
