Anyone else enjoy theirs as much as I do mine?
Favorite SUV, yes
Fav car, gotta go to this 650hp/750tq V12 Twin Turbo Benz
Basically i own the most reliable vehicle ever built, as well as the least reliable vehicle ever built.
My commute is 26 miles each way to work, which one i take depends on the weather.
One of our local MB indie shops uses these old diesels as their loaner cars, it's always so much fun and such a joy to slide behind the wheel of one of these, wait for the glow plugs to ready themselves, and putter around (slowly) in the rain. Something that shouldn't be any fun whatsoever is somehow a magical experience in a W123. This may be the closest analog to a Land Cruisier in sedan form.No.
I literally get chased down on a regular basis on the street for people to give thumbs up, wave, smile, etc. Everyone sees it and wants to share a story of when they had one back in the day and how much they loved it.
This is my all time dream car and the plan is to downsize to one of these one day. Yours is one of the nicest I have seen. Simply beautiful... thanks for sharing.Favorite SUV, yes. Favorite car all time is the 73 911S I’ve owned for 15 years. Lots of cars come and go but the silver 73S is part of the family.
You summarized my feelings about the LX exactly. I have torn down so many various bits on so many various cars during my life and this is one of the most well-constructed I've come across. I took it to one of my most discerning friends (the kind of guy who has owned multiple vintage Mercs, Volvos, BMWs and more) who has never sat in one of the cars and I let him drive/critique the s***e out of it. He barely had any words, just kind of shook his head in mild disbelief, nodded his head, and threw his hands up halfway as if to say "I can't find a damn thing wrong with this at all".I love telling people how the ride reminds me of an older Rolls-Royce as does the silence, tall driving position, and overall feeling of solidity of every switch, button, and interface.
