Another fire damaged Mercedes- 94 300 wagon

Was this a common problem on these cars? Was there a recall for a potential fire hazard. This WAS a really nice car.

Here is another fine car. 98 Jaguar. Repairable? Wouldn't this cost a little bit of $$$ to repair this piece of junk?

There was a 86 Rolls that had had an engine fire on ebay a couple of years ago I think in NYC. The hood was scorcthed and bent probably by the fire dept. getting access. I was harboring (and still am ) the thought of finding a Rolls with a bad engine and doing a 454 Chevy comversion as they used the GM 400 transmission in some models. With a nice blueprinted 454 and the GM tranny and as many other American parts used as possible seems like would be a resonable car to maintain.Then I could honestly put bumper stickers on my MB's that my other car is a Rolls......

I see the wagon is a 94 E320. I wonder if the fire is related to the deficient engine wiring harness.

Perhaps. It looks as though the fire started around the firewall on the driverside. I would guess that the electrical wiring under the dash is also damaged. It would probably be very costly to repair this car and it would probably never be reliable. If I am not mistaken- this is not the first early to mid 90s E320 I have seen with fire damage. Obviously some problem somewhere.
