Simple enough, Oscar is being generous and gives you $2,000 to buy the car of your dreams, or of your nightmares, what would you buy?

450SEL 6.9 #5440 = V MB 690 , 450SE # 43094 = 02010 H , 190E/turbo # 31548 = AOH 68K

there is a lot of cool cars, I wouldn't mind, cheap enough to buy, maybe no so cheap to maintain

goggomobil,
mini of some sort,
vw beetle of some sort, prefer the pre superbug cars.
maybe a bit ambitious, but an Mercedes SLC
a real shitty 6.9, as long as the motor and gearbox was good, bugger the rest.

I was thinking I couldn't afford to give any of you $2000 'cause I would've just bought a shitty 6.9 :D
1973 350SE, my first & fave

A really high class hooker.

I'd stick a funnel in her mouth, and environmentaly dispose of my 12.5 litres of used 6.9 engine oil.

Then, id tell her to get f&cked.  ::)

Charming Bateman, charming
another one of your, "tales from a serial killer"  :D  :D  :D


We are talking car here please, you can only buy cars.

Ok - In all seriousness, 2k would go nicely with the rest of my savings for my interior restoration.

I wouldn't buy another car - i don't have room for the ones i have! :(

Dunno...it would be a toss up between an engine rebuild for the 280, though it doesn't really need one but it can't hurt, or a full AMG kit or something on the 350 just for fun. It's a low spec (options) car afterall, so I wouldn't worry too much on originality.

Turbo the 280?

Same as i've already done.

I'd buy 4 cars.

1 x Datsun 120Y 1976 - $100
1 x Mercedes 450 SEL 1978 [Euro] - $300
1 x Mercedes 450 SEL 1978 [Aust] - $500
1 x Datsun 120Y 1975 - $200

With the $900 change, i'd look for another couple 116's.  ;D

Would be fun, but I'd refuse to molester the 280SEL. If it was a reletively low milage cheap 'poverty pack' 280SE or something, I probably would.

I'm seriously thinking of sprucing up the front of the 350SE though (yes, in real life even without the $2000  ;) ).
