Mercedes-Benz W 123 - Development of a Legendary Youngtimer
A child of the 70s and a cult car of the 80s - both labels apply to the W
123. Beside the spirit of the times the W 123 carried many technical
innovations and safteyfeatures. A modern body in trendy colors, that's the
W 123 that we all know. In the early 70s, the model series 123 was already
in development. The developers paid particular attention to comfort,
convenience and safety. Countless kilometers of test drives along with new
test methods made sure that everything on the W 123 was of the highest
quality, right down to the smallest detail.

300D Mercedes - Bleeding Engine
$300 car, all it needed was a bleeding and then it drove great. It was
sitting in this guy's yard for 2 1/2 years with air in the engine due to a
loose fuel filter. He thought it was broken so he gave it away =] engine
has only 195,000 miles on it, which is nothing for these cars. It has the
standard straight 5 engine.
I will be using this car in my first veggie oil conversion project.
Mercedes Benz Diesel EXTREME -20F Cold Start Winter W115
((Look at my new cold start video, all the bugs are fixed))
I only paid 300 dollars for it, the guy thought it had a blown engine, but
it turned out the timing on the injector pump was way off. I ended up
taking the injector pump off and putting it on the right teeth, and doing
the drip test, and etc.
