Dangerous obsession?


Oh oh. The Mercedes W123 bug has bitten me quite unexpectedly, just when I thought I had it under some sort of control.

Last week I was on the Benzworld forum and noticed one of the members had a rare car for sale. There are plenty of gas 280e sedans around. A small minority of these have a 5 speed transmission. And of this small minority, an even smaller minority became AMG versions, tuned up in Germany with some performance parts like a hotter cam and limited slip differentials. And very few of these AMG versions came to North America.

One is for sale. I have put a deposit on it and hope to close the deal early in July.
