One thing about this board - you can get alot of different viewpoints and that is a good thing. I could go out and purchase a brand new S500 if that is what I wanted to drive but believe it or not I would rather drive a W123. I've been through that middle age crazy stuff and ended up purchasing a 50cc scooter (Yamaha Jog) to get my kicks with and I purchased it used
. Anyway, I think each to his/her own
, I'll stick with my cheap to own, cheap to purchase and cheap to drive W123's. I got rid of a very nice 1995 E320 just because I kinda like the "old" technology (and some to appease the wife who was telling me to "get rid of one of them").
Steve was the car "local" Eastman or Macon?
