You are in the Classic Cars
What is this discussion about?

Saw a couple of old diesels in the past hour - a W123 300D with 4 MB mileage badges on the grille, and a very clean W126 300SD turbo in a somehow very agreeable dark brown, quietly clattering down the road, a maintained car.
Also a car transporter carrying a big 66 (?) Buick convertible with no top and substantial rust in the rockers, and a 69-70 Cougar on the same truck.

Price is okay on the 6.3 but I'd have a marque expert go over it first. Parts are pricey indeed. Fun to drive, though, and a real "Q" ship---"oh, another dumpy 4-door Mercedes"-----er, no....

I had an E55, and yes, I replaced it. Didn't want to start hoarding cars - if I held on to it for years longer, it would be hard for me to sell, as I become attached. And, I had the itch for something new, along with finding a good deal.
A 6.3 is an awesome car but a real money pit. That advertised car looks nice, could have issues hiding, no doubt has had a lot more than the price spent on it. There was one at the local MBCA show a couple years ago with something like 15K miles on it.

Why, look at that old blue Benz! I don't think we've ever seen it here before.

...what appeared to be an aborted project car in a carport in Willow Grove, PA - a filthy red 1955 Chevrolet with a missing decklid. Looks like he gave up over 20 years ago.

80-81? El Camino in pretty nice shape out today. It sounded like something substantial was under the hood.

He wouldn't be the first dreamer to realize "oh, restoring an old car from scratch is a LOT of work....AND I don't know how to do it".

Hey, it's an obscure car!
Saw this mess this morning:
Also a VW fastback and a ~50 Chevy

Hopefully not your new diesel, and a Testarossa that looks like it hit something else.
