'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model, that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
1,4 Million KM Mercedes 300D Sat 7 Years
Was put away in 2003 because of rust and the engine was worn, it didn't start in the winters and it smoked real bad. It sat for 7 years another place, so it was moved to this place, but not started because we used a truck. Over the 7 years we lost the key for it, so I had to redneck wire the glowplugs and starter.

1,2 Million Km Mercedes 300TD startup
(1,2 million km = 770000 miles)
These are in my opinion the best cars ever made, they run forever. This one used to be a taxi and is pretty worn out, but engine and tranny is all original as far as I know, and has never had any major rebuilds or repairs.

My 1987 Mercedes 190D 2.5
Made for 1,000,000 km's, thanks to the famous OM602 engine. However, it just reached a tenth of it.
The first owner was an older lady who probably just loved the sound of the engine. She drove 40,000km's between 1987 and 2008. I'm currently the third owner. Just love the Artik Weiss color and its blue/black interior. With some nice options as well, like ABS, MB Alarm, headlamp wipers, electric sunroof, alloy MB wheels, automatic gearbox, 4 headrests, etc.
I'm planning on keeping it for a long time, but as it is my 25th car, I can't promise anything anymore.
UPDATE March 26th, 2013: Still 'in the family' and with 123tkm still a baby too. Replaced valve seals in between, furthermore no problems, just fun and reliability after holidays to Berlin, France, etc.
