There was a older women here locally that drove a early 80s Mercedes 280SEL up until about a year ago. It may have been a 280SE, but I think it was a long wheelbase model if I recall- similar to the US 380SEL model, but being a European model- it had the small bumpers. I remember parking by that car one day- only to notice it is a manual shift car, with manual windows, no sunroof and cloth interior. Now I see her driving a new Mercedes sedan. I think it is a C or E Class. Not sure. Her old Mercedes was interesting indeed. I thought it was odd to see a very large, but very plain Mercedes, until I learned that is how some of the European models are.
