Ebay motors seems to have lots of good 240D's showing up that are located in Florida. One great thing about the old 240's is that police don't even give them a second glance. They are slow on pickup, but they can cover distance very quickly and stop on a dime. There was only one design of brakes that year (78) that covered the entire MBZ line, including the 600 limo, so for the 240 it is tremendously overengineered and sized. My 240 wasn't in the same comfort category as my 300SD, but it was a fun car that I drove until I simply wanted a change. If you can talk your daughter into liking it, she will be safe. Try the snob factor (Wow! a Mercedes!)
