Might have found one

The search is narrowing in on a couple of cars in the Lower Mainland. Not much money is needed to buy them, but I understand that rather a lot is required to keep them on the road and looking good. We'll see where this leads us to.

The 280 series has been called 'the last real Mercedes'. Of course, people can call things whatever they want. Me, I'm looking for a practical classic, a car with robust engineering and a certain degree of rarity. Not so rare that parts can't be found, but rare enough to earn a second glance and make people muse 'you don't see many of those around'.

Ideally, the car won't be dangling from a tow truck at the time...
