Not just in the Vaderland... but even in other countries (east & west) outside the US, you will be amazed how pristine/fresh these 126s, 124s, 123s, 116s, 114/115s, 107s, etc... are.

Did you happen to click on the first car(300D). It has more rust than most New England cars.

Paper Papers

I was amazed that I rarely in Germany ever saw a "beater" car. A local there told me the german officials are REAL tough on the yearly inspections.

Got a big dent in your fender?-FAIL (the dent has undermined the structal intergrity of the car making it unsafe)

A window not roll up/down? FAIL (how will a passenger get out if door is jammed in an accident-unsafe)

List goes on and on-the Germans do not F around

Cars in Germany are cheap once they get older, because they can't pass TUV. It gets too costly to keep older cars in compliance, ... they sell them to people in other countries.
