This particular 1984 Mercedes 230 was spotted a short while ago in North Bristol.
I don’t think I’ve seen a car with as many holes in its bodywork that still holds a valid MOT. The longer you look at it the more you notice the parts that are bent, dented or hanging off.
That being said, certain parts of it are strangely clean (chrome, bonnet, wheels) so perhaps it’s something of a rolling restoration. W123s definitely have something the newer cars don’t and it’s nice to see a rough and ready example still roaming the streets.
