yes. I am a sucker for cars, all cars. I really want a nice 560SEL, but at the same time would take a GS430...

Anyone want to give me either? Or Both? PLEASE?

That's a very nice looking car. Wow. The star seems crooked, though.

Perhaps off topic for this thread and the great Benz pic, but it's settled: my wife's brought up the subject of getting a 2nd car, and i've decided if we get one it'll be an older-model Benz.

No, I already have a Camry which is basically an ES300 minus the badge. I am selling it to buy a W126. Life is to short for boreing cars. Long live the W126!!!
Better then Lexus in every way that matters!!!

I sure wish I had Lexus headlights on the SE and SDL. And Lexus wipers. And Lexus power and mpg from the SE. Who's selling a Lexus?

Year and exact model pictured?

What year and model is the Benz pictured? A w126 or v126? Engine size? I looked in your profile but no info. Looks like my car, a 1989 420 SEL (v126). Front shot picture is hard to tell exactly. I would not trade any two Lexus for my car. The SELs are so regal, with an air of real formality and style. You should visit this great site. Pictures of my car here - Gallery/Owners (Mark Nye, Cave Creek Az. www.geocities.com/w126s

Doc. is that a Viper to the left?
sixto "sure wish I had Lexus headlights on the SE and SDL. And Lexus wipers. And Lexus power and mpg from the SE. Who's selling a Lexus?"

My headlights are ok nothing to write home about. Wipers are ok, but no cool headlight wipers! Lexus power? They have power since when? My 4 banger Camry gets 20 mpg, I would trade 5 off that in a seconed for a V8 or L6. If you want I will put some ES300 badgeing on my Camry and sell it to you.
It only has a few problems: Needs rear struts $820 at indi. Needs valve seals. $? Leaks oil from every place imaginable. Pass. side window rattles and doesn't move quickly. oops I shouldn't have said anything, now you won't want it.

How can you compare a Lexus to this? If I had wanted a Lexus I would have purchased one.
