In the meantime, I've picked up something new, and by new, I mean very old.
Photos aren't ready yet and I'm still trying to get it roadworthy, but in the meantime here is some related material.
Mercedes Motoring is an operation out in California that restores primarily W116 and W123 diesels. The work they do is *astounding* and their travel photos are terrific. No airbags or rusted hoods here, these are 100% stock restorations.
