Mario's New Daily Driver

Since he doesnt want to drive the SRT everyday, he bought a Mercedes. Not sure on the specifics but I am pretty sure it is as old or damn near my age.


Anyways it runs and seems to be in top mechanical order but the paint is.....meh.

But we know Mario can work magic with a Rotary or DA.


Here's a sneak preview (half of the hood has had one pass so far).

Re: Mario's New Daily Driver

It's a W201 190E.

I can tell from the seats, hood, and side mirrors.

That'd be awesome if it is a 16 valve.

Re: Mario's New Daily Driver

They are fun little cars... my friend had a cherry 2.3-16 when I was at UCF. This was back when I had my '83 300D turbo diesel. MB built some of the best engineered cars in the world back in the 80's and early 90's.

Re: Mario's New Daily Driver

Guys, it's an '88 300E with 101,000 miles.
I'm not done wit it yet, the paint is really bad as you can see in the picture Joe posted. But it's coming out really nice, wait til you see the results.
Is going to be my daily driver but I'm putting a FOR SALE on it, if I sell it I might buy an XJ .

Re: Mario's New Daily Driver

DOH. I could have sworn it was a 190. I forgot the W124's had hoods like that.

If it was a diesel I'd really consider buying it.
