Look what I bought!

It's a diesel and someone here owned it.

Looks pretty cool!

The wheels look like they need a washing though!

They came that way. Care to guess the previous owner?

Also came with a second set of wheels.

Nice ride, congrats Don. Looks very well cared for, the nice thing about it is that you can fly low on the radar with it. Nothing gets unwanted attention more than a red MB cabriolet.

Looks better there than his buried on the beach photo, ...

I'm betting that it is well detailed and sorted? Could use some '94 corners and tails though.

It was the only color I liked in '87, looks soooo good when it's clean and buffed.

Anthracite Grey is my fav color. My w123 was the same.

I have a list of things I need to deal with. Mostly nit picking stuff that if I didn't buy it, Matthew would have.

I'll start a thread on that soon so other can chime in
