Whilst on a weekend in Bath, some nutter crashed into my 450SLC! The 450SLC ran superbly from London to Oxford and from Oxford to Bath - absolutely amazing, with sunroof open, it was fantastic. Now the car has been classified as a total loss by the insurance company, I was tempted to take it back, but have been told it would cost over £10k to get it done up again, which is not ideal. What amazes me is that the person who hit me actually left his/her car 100 yards from my car and ran away! Mine was hit in the back end, but the Mk4 Golf clearly suffered much worse than me. It is amazing how tough these old Mercs are! I am looking at a new car now, either get another 450SLC or thinking about a W126 300SE or am thinking about a XJ6 3.2, any views? Are W126 as tough as the SLCs?
