1980s / German / Mercedes-Benz


Driving to Idaho I noticed a w126 in a distant field next to a dealership. Any old Benz is worth stopping to get a closer look; turns out this is a gray market 500SEL with 107,000 on the clock, very straight exterior and a more-than-decent interior. A call to the dealership reveals it was traded in as part of the cash for clunkers program and cannot be sold or parted.

One thought on “>Clunker?

  1. >That's very sad. Looks like its worth far more than $4500. A friend of mine had the same model back in the late 80s. It was lots of fun. In Euro tune it was very fast for the day. I would be tempted to steal it.
