A 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEL (long wheel-base version) in its original condition at 167000 miles, this automobile was built in Stuttgart Germany during the time when the company stood behind its one-time motto: Engineered Like No Other Car in the World. And it shows. Perhaps almost similar to a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow/Spirit/Spur, the car's V8 engine runs remarkably smooth and quiet for its age. It is also reliable as a daily driver. The noise you hear is the creaking of my dress belt against the leather seat. By the way, I have finally changed the tacky rims to the original wheels after months of searching for a set in pristine condition!
