Destruction of a 1983 Mercedes 300D w123

no real destruction, just some fun with the farm car. This thing was totally rusted out underneath and had many serious problems, so we had fun with the 25mpg, filthy POS old benz before it went to the pick a part yard.

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.
