Doesn't the Corolla have a crash bar from the Maruti Omni ? Looks like it still runs fine. Of course, brake lights are missing,and overall in a bad state.

wasent the boot sufficeint?..a carrier!!

the car hasnt started rusting yet has it?
i hope it reaches right hands before that

mercs of this period happen to be my favorite

the latest mercs (i mean the E class) dont have this appeal, the new s and c class are much better then the mercs of period 1996-2005

Kirryaji, this is indeed a LHD and is a W126 300SD which was an American spec 300D with a turbo charger, This was the same engine used in the W123 300 turbo diesel. The body is similar to my W126 300SEL which is a RHD and the engine is similar to my W123 300D LHD.
thank youji

As of today it's practical to either own the cars of recent generations(for use) or vintage/classic cars (as part of a collection).
