I saw that, too. In fact, I also own two other cars on their list.

Interestingly enough, (and I don't think this is a spoiler for those who haven't seen it...) I saw Interstellar over the weekend, which takes place, largely, in the late 21st century. All the cars in the movie are current models or older, implying that global manufacturing is a thing of the past and that people are keeping old cars on the road for decades, much like in Cuba.

In one scene, some of the main characters are driving (has to be late 21st, early 22nd century at this point), and I see, among other cars, an early W126 in the background.

I could totally see an early 300SD lasting 100 years (with good maintenance and repairs as necessary).
