Mercedes-Benz 220S (Ponton Sedan)
has been an excellent car for me. I
bought it 13 years ago and have never regretted it, even in the early days when
it just needed so much.
been a Californian car it has very little rust.
The worst is in the trunk where I treated it 13 years ago, and just put
a piece of board and carpet over the center.
You can make your own decisions about how far you want to go with this
car. For me I kind of like having a little
patina. Too perfect makes it hard to
use, and I like driving this car. For at
least three years this was my daily driver.
I owned a coffee shop at the time.
I noticed that whenever the car was outside it drew in a lot of
customers; I drove it a-lot.
did modify the ignition system in the way the magazine Octane advised on
"using a classic every day". I
switched out the mechanical petrol pump for an electric unit, installed an
electronic distributor, and switched out the generator for an alternator. I also made sure the brakes are in perfect
order. This car starts right up, and can
drive all day down the freeway. I still
prefer it to a modern car, its suspension is silky smooth compared to my 98
420s. However as I get older I find that
I need AC in the summer, and it seems mean to take it out in the rain. So lately it has been getting less and less mileage. Last year I only used it for about 500 miles.
if you are looking for a great old car that turns heads, and is fun to drive
this is the car. I haven't regretted it,
you won't either.
