I have a chance to get the lady next door 1988 420SEL with around 80K on it. Her parents brought it over from Germany new. It is lt blue with dark blue interior. very very nice shape. new tires and exhaust. The car sits most the time inside. what I would like to know is this something I will enjoy or will it drive me to the poor house.never had a MB. I am a car nut and have a E30 M3 and always like the 420SEL I think the price will be around 3500.I would not use this as my daily driver just weekend trips, casino trips, and to work sometimes. and when I do sell it would I get anything for it or will I have to give it away with gas prices?What I would like to ask is. Will I love this car and will it make a good fun hobby car or should I pass it up?

yea - I assumed it was a USA model.

you'll love the lack of maintanence compared to your labor
intensive E30 M3 S14 motor.

just takes that initial going over - changing every fluid and filter
in the M-B to get it up to date.

you'll love it long time.
