Life in the Slow Lane: A Mercedes 240D Ownership Story

240D parked by the ocean

In April of 2021, I purchased a 1977 Mercedes-Benz 240D from its original owner, who had special ordered it, picked it up at the factory, and then used it as a daily driver for some 44 years and 250,000 miles.

Here I’ll be chronicling my own adventures with the car, including how I came to buy it, what it’s like to live with, and how much it costs to run.

Welcome to Life in the Slow Lane.

I’ll be covering the story blog style, with a new update every few weeks. You can find the latest posts here. Or use the link below to start at the very beginning:
