Keep it unless you desperately need the funds. What happened to the rather nice green W124 you picked up off ebay a couple of years ago?

Here's the only pic of my 300SD that I (stupidly) brought back from California.

I think I was managing 35-40mpg on my commute, which was not bad. Turned into a lawn ornament eventually when I started to work from home all the time :D

Ah sorry LGF, now I think about it, it was HarryBurgundy.

Blue coupe is lovely - simple, clean lines.

Keep, because, well, look at it :)

+1 for LPG, although the fuel consumption doesn't sound too horrendous unless you're actually doing substantial mileages in it.

It lives for another year or so! Passed its MOT with advisories on tyres, ball-joints and a teeny hole that will need welding.

Where is your hole?

Good time of year for new tyres anyway, whether or not they are actually needed for the test.
