As some of you know I currently have a 1981 W registration W126 280se which is in excellent good order. I use the car as a daily driver at the moment and because I don't have a big enough garage at present it sits outside. Interior is immaculate. Exterior is very very good apart from some slight cosmetic rust on the front wings which will be sorted soon. The question is, because my car was registered in April 1981, could I have something special here i.e. the earliest W126 still on UK roads....is there any way of finding out?? Also...could anyone give me a rough guide as to value?? I know this is difficult but the car is in show worthy condition and I do go to shows in it. It must be one of the better ones left, although it's by no means concourse. I may decide in the next few months to retire the car from every day use if I get a big enough garage. Just want opinions on whether this is a good idea or whether I should just use it daily still?? I await the debate.......!!!!!
