I keep showing appreciation for the SL’s passionate design, and very rarely these saloons (quite literally saloons).
It just so happens that I saw one of these a few days ago, while driving back from the beach on a very sunny day. I never accounted for the cool factor these W108 have when properly maintained. I was green with envy and immediately wanted to sell my car.
I’ve singled out Mercedes in the examples I’ve chosen, mainly because it’s Mercedes who used to get the Tarantino approach so right. Look at the W123 models. There were no aliens. The White House didn’t explode, Will Smith wasn’t in the glovebox with a wise crack. They were just well-made cars.
