1987 300D 0-60 Videos

Since there really aren't any good, level places here in the hills of WV to do a true 0-60, I did one on a downhilll and one on an uphill so you can get a good idea of how my 1987 300D (stock) runs. 244,3xx miles.

You've got a strong runner.

Try timing your car down a specific section of road in both directions. Average the two runs, and you'll have your times.

I tried to do a 0-60 video with mine, but I ran out of tape before I got to 60

Is it just me or is your parking brake on in the second one?

All I know is, my car has probably never seen those rpms. One of these days, I'll find a good strip and give him a real run ...
