Mercedes Benz W123: The Greatest Car Ever Made? #TBT photos

Have I mentioned that I enjoy driving my old Mercedes Benz 300d Turbodiesel? 😉

“On January 29, 1976, Mercedes unveiled a new midsize car to replace its long-serving W115 model. Known by its internal designation as the W123, the car’s sober good looks and size seemed like a logical evolutionary step over the outgoing model. Mercedes invited a small group of journalists to the south of France for the occasion, and while the company had high expectations for the model, what no one could’ve realized is that Mercedes was about to trap lightning in a bottle.”
