  1. This one. If you want a W123 Mercedes get this one. The 300D is faster, but the manual would be pretty nice. Black is the best color. Shows off the lines nicely and hides the rust holes perfectly if this moves to rust prone areas. My 300D's rust worm just could not be stopped, but she still looked good right up till the end when a sixteen year old kid back up into her trunk at a speed that didn't seem to properly correlate with reverse gear. Love these cars. At 155K, this one is young.
