Maybe it's the resolution, but I don't see a hint of a hood star on either car.
How did they aim those things?

That's sweet. But it reminds me of a question I posted a long time ago: Did the w123 cars ever come with limited-slip differentials?

Did these rally cars have them installed, or did they actually manage that kind of terrain without? Hard to imagine!

All of the w123 rally cars were 280 gassers (at least all the ones that I have ever seen listed as "winners" or placing ).
I am pretty sure they had limited slip, they would have to. Modified suspension too.

PS: They had to lose the star to save on drag!

Heres another. I was using this pic as a loose base for the rally conversion I was considering for my old '79 wagon before someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse. This one is missing the roof rack, though. I wanted four spares on the roof too.
I always wanted a rally car!

sort of related, I have a set of the groovy fog lites that the 115s came with and I am thinking of drilling out my front bumper and mounting them like those lights. Anyone have any other pics of extra fog lights mounted on a 123 bumper?

wow guys, please keep these coming, I need ideas on how to make my 240D look cool
(I'm already on the lookout for some of those "big arsed" foglights mounted on the front of rally W123's...)

I mounted some rectangular Hellas under the bumper on a 300TD. It looks better suited in my opinion, than round lamps on the W123 (sorta stealthy).
The 115 chassis has a nice littel cut out to either side of the grill that is perfect for mounting up to 6 inch lights. I have a set of Carellos I need to install on my 220.
(picture of the wagon lights to follow)
