Goodness, I didn't even know this thread existed and got requested to post.

Mine is a 1980 300SD automatic with the console shifter.

Not a personal car but the guy that I got my euro bumpers from had a 350se 4-speed among his collection of ~10 w116 project and parts cars. Not sure of the year. I can get exact info on all of his cars when I am at his place next time if you would like.

To keep the data pure and somewhat scientific, rules state that only cars that are presently owned by .org members can be included in the poll.

Stan, any W116 counts.  The odds of there being a conversion are slim.  Furthermore, any and all types of prejudices/segregations are prohibited; even for scientific reasons, and even for non .org members.  Just because a W116 doesn't belong to a .org member doesn't mean it can't count.  This isn't the type of research that has to have such rules, and using non .org input won't make the data any less pure or less scientific to any measureable degree.  In the end, the results will only reflecet the input, and the input will produce a very large margin of error due to the fact that so many W116 cars are either missing, rusted away and crushed, or forgotten about somewhere. However, Anything that anybody reports  is of significance, and very welcomed.  It'll be nice to know what is still out there.  It's all for fun and furthering our knowledge. Have fun with it!

No offense, but within that scope, we would have had 500 entries already. "I saw this, in that street", "I have a friend that.."
Sounds acceptable, but it's a slippery slope, all the way down to "I heard that he has a car that"
We kept it clean and tidy till now, no data pollution anyone can accuse us of, except the crazy odds that a -listed- privately owned car was indeed modified from manual to automatic. That's what allows us to keep a minimally, acceptable margin of error.
Let's keep it that way.

OK, but don't come crying when someone gets offended, or when a moderator deletes the thread altogether.  Fair warning....

Pretty sure that's a rather unlikely risk. This is a polite forum, and there's no reason anyone would take offense taking part in a (wannabe-) scientific poll.

Are we going to find the last 24 entries?
