Jimmy, I didn't know you liked green on green color combos. Our 1981 300SD has the silver thistle metallic on olive leather color combo. Maybe if we can get the a/c working on it and take of some other maintainence items in time, you can see it in Centerville this summer.

I remember seeing pics of it in the past I think, and it is beautiful. I would love to see it in person, and can't promise I won't try and drive off with it.....
{does Hattie have one of these too??}

If I could find a green on green or green on tan 300D, I'd be all over it.

I considered straying from the w123 family for this one:

For me I think it's sensory association. It reminds me of my mom's kitchen when I was a kid. Avocado green walls and appliances.

That's a nice W116. I need to get a 300SD or 6.9, that fuel door is too cool!

That thing needs some euro bumpers!

I think I will get my car pinstriped, that looks sharp.
