Hello!

My name is Miguel and I'm from Portugal.

My family has had MBs since before I was born so I grew up with them (1st test drive was when I was about 8, on my father's 240D W123 Merc! :))

My first MB was a 200TD W124 wagon, with only ABS and power steering :D What a tank!

That babe was rolling around 3500kms every month and never let me down. Sold her with 350.000 kms. Only downside on the wagon was the engine... WAY underpowered! :crazy:

Once I left the job that made me run all those kms every month, I was able to step up the game and buy another car... It HAD to be another W124 though :p

So I found this mint Coupe about 300kms from me... had to pick it up:

The Coupe has 210.000 kms but is absolutly as new inside and out... :)

Well, the Coupe is my baby and was "sleeping" outside every night. Also, I realized that If I wanted to keep it in good shape, I shouldnt drive it everyday or park it at the mall everyday... so, time for another car :D


Enter the 1993 220E Sportline :bannana:

Take care!
