best choice 81'300sd, 83' 300d

hello guys i own a mint 93' accord and a 300d 1983 but have chance to get a very nice 81 300sd with new dealer engine and all front end parts repaced. Rich lady who is moving away and will not need the car anymore. I live in new jersey and want to hold on to the best 2 cars. I love the benz but the honda is so reliable.

The 300SD is a nice car. If you decide against it, please cantact me. I'm looking for a car that will keep my daughter safe, gets good mileage, and dependable. Just send me a private message and I'll get right back to you.

I have both an SD and a D and I really enjoy the SD but I like big floaty cars....

Well a nice Honda is a good thing to have with these cars, I have needed to borrow a car twice since I started to drive mine in May. Haveing a car that will start every time and cost a few bucks to keep going it nice then you can take your time on the repairs. Not to mention the Honda is probably pretty good in the snow.

I miss my Camry I had money in the bank when I owned that car, now I have money in a German steel.

Keep the Accord, thrash the 300D, then get the 300SD. Like Hatterasguy said, the Accord will never let you down like the two Benzes will sometime. By just being newer, the Accord is bound to give less issues that the two Benzes. And when issues do occur, you can get any cheap backyard mechanic to fix the Accord for you. Also, I couldn't see your location in your profile, but if you live in a place that gets some ice and snow in winter, then the Accord, with its front wheel drive will be a good car for those bad road days.
