Quote from: michaeld on 16 April 2006, 11:36 PMI could be wrong here (and God knows I often am!), but I'm a wee tad suspicious. I notice there is no model number on the rear. I have never heard of a 116 wagon - but I HAVE seen extremely well done conversions. Is this a factory 116 that was available in some far off European realm, or an awesome "chop job"? If someone knows, please educate me. It is a beautiful wagon, in any event. And I agree with Warden; I like wagons. They are just such practical cars. If MBz didn't make a 116 wagon, this car is proof they should have!As for our more garden variety 116s, I have to say THEY are pretty darned practical. I've been in the process of moving the last several weeks, and the storage capacity of my 450SEL is INCREDIBLE!
