Ok I think i need to stop this Mercedes madness! i was always saying to myself i would always buy a clean 126 SEC if it was a euro spec. I found one locally and i have to say, it has to be one of the nicest i have ever seen on the island. It has tons of power and everything works on it. Take a look at the pics:)

























here is the ad for the car:

Beautiful.

If you're preserving old Benzes, there is no such thing as too many - until you run out of funds or storage.  Your friends are merely envious.

One of my all time favourite cars.

I was always amazed at how a very subtle change to the profile of the bonnet changed the driver's view out of the windscreen between SEL and SEC.

The Dark Colored M-Bs tend to find me, My 500e looks out of place now! I would love to have a 280 se coupe, that is up there on my list.  The Euro 500 does go very well, i actually notice that i don't have to stomp the pedal to make it go... It just builds speed up and up until your in the illegal zone...:)

Slightly off topic, but I read today that Honolulu has the highest accident rate involving alcohol in the US - at a rate of 52% of it's fatal crashes involving alcohol. By comparison, Utah, the Mormom capital,  is 24%. Does all that sun go to your head, or is there nothing else to do except buy Mercedes and hence the drinking to sooth the nerves ?

Love the SEC, has the height adjustable headlights as well, very useful feature, I guess you don't get fog over there but I found on a previous Mercedes W123 I had, that in fog you would drop the lights right down to the road and had better view than with them up at normal height.

Colour is also a good one,
now all you need is some AMG Hammer wheels, and you will be errr Hammering!

I had no idea that it was that high, that is a very interesting fact.
