1991 Mercedes-Benz W124 300CE Coupe 24-valve straight six from North America
Timeless Classic - A Teutonic Masterpiece
The original catalytic converter is breaking apart inside, the antenna mast goes up only 1/2 way (but radio reception seems to be unaffected).
Bear in mind, though - this is a 21-year old car.
Sit behind the wheel, go for a drive... and you are truly "transported". I don't just mean that you get from "point A" to "point B"... this car makes you feel like you're much wealthier, much more important and much more influential and intelligent than you really are. :-)
The engine and running gear are buttery-smooth, quiet and powerful, the interior swaddles you in leather, wood and the highest quality materials available, and the ride makes you feel like you are being pampered at a spa. When you park it, you look back at it admiringly while walking away and think, "Why yes, that's my car... isn't it faaabulous"?
The car feels like it was hand-built, hand-carved and custom-tailored by old, white-bearded, bespectacled German artisans.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
