same conclusion - retired the 300SD

I came to the same conclusion and retired the 300SD a year ago to someone who was prepared to do more heavy wrenching and/or run it into the ground - something I could not bear to do.

I had the same challenges as many others - indies who knew these cars are dropping out, and my local shops here in the BC interior that simply do not want to touch any unusual vehicle. With a weak back and no access to a lift, I didn't fancy doing the prop shaft and rear end work on my SD that needed to sometime in the future.

Given our wonderful summer climate, I'll keep the 380SL running as long as possible but the W126 was a much nicer drive than the W107!

I'm now driving a VW Golf wagon - a really fun ride with great handling and fantastic fuel economy. I miss the SD but the new ride is great.
