    I've just filled up after a 450 mile round trip in my 300DT.
    It was such a comfortable and enjoyable drive that I thought I'd post a pic.

    Inspired by the pic from 300DT, I'll put one up too. This one was taken last week on my holiday in Snowdonia.

    W124's always feel special. Tidy ones look pretty good too.

    Just in case saloon drivers feel left out, here's a pic of my 300E a lovely car but a little poorly sick at the moment. I'm hoping it will be restored to full health after the weekend. It's my first Merc, I've had it nearly a year and it's a brilliant car

    And here she is in the sunshine.

    She's had new boots fitted today so tonight's drive home will be on fresh Continental Premium Contact 5's. I'm looking forward to it.

    My personal favourite is the 300TE with the sublime M103 engine. Fantastic car.

    Only just seen this thread.....

    For me, this reminds me of times when mercs were a bit more 'exclusive'

    Great looking car.

    Here is a pic of the last time I saw my old '96 124, where I dropped it off at the new owner's house, to make way for my E500. I wished at the time I had the space to keep it, and I miss it two years later.

    A cheap, last minute ebay purchase, this was a scruffy, leaky car with a heart of gold in its 280 engine. Left for months at a time without fear of being damaged, used as a "crew" car at Le Mans, which also played with the big boys out on the French countryside runs, it couldn't quite keep up, but didn't complain at being made to try! Three and a half years later, it was the ultimate in bangernomics, fun, comfort and style (okay - shabby chic!), whilst providing transport for seven and lugging equipment all around the country without missing a beat. And the ******* dismantled you! Bye bye, old friend. :(

    Edit: With special thanks to gaffer tape, who enabled this pic to be taken by holding the car together and keeping the water out!
