There are TONS of w210s on the market right now...

I my quest to find the perfect w124 for my old man, I've been scouring Craigslist, Autotrader, and the like...and I'm noticing the over abundance of w210 cars for sale, at cheap prices. Even up here in the rust belt, there are nice looking cars even starting as low as $4k in that chassis - tons of them.

I know the w124 is going to be a little tougher to find, since it is an older car, but I am stunned at the amount of newer E-Class rides available. If you're in the market for a w210, you'll have your pick of a bunch of nice cars.

That is all. Carry on.

Does there need to be? Whowhat, thanks for sharing. We looked at W210 before last purchase due to the low prices but the body style did absolutely nothing for me, so we got a W124 instead. I sure others would disagree but that's why they come in all colors, styles, etc. so that we the masses can be satisified

ive noticed them too. im in for a diesel, but afraid of the 1x/year glow plug R&R, front spring perch, overly complicated shut off valve, and generally over complicated electrical system. i love the look though, maybe i will pick 1 up...
