you tube video "is this the essence of the w123"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbZ4r2XCcI0&feature=related

Came across this video of a euro 300TD on a lift with Otis Redding singing in the background. Wish I could translate the title of the video. Listening to the words, I think this nails some of the feelings we have about these cars.

That may be one of the most boring videos I've ever seen. Watching water go down a drain for an hour is more exciting. I sympathize with the wagon owner.

LOL, you are taking it too literally. I guess it was the song, the beautiful car juxtaposed with the more mundane issue of the leaking diesel fuel. Kind of represents the yin and yang of vintage diesel ownership for me.
