30 Years of the W124 – A Tribute

Thirty years have passed since the introduction of the W124 Mercedes-Benz E-class range. This is a car that had big shoes to fill, as the W123 range was beloved the world over for its quality, durability and rock solid diesel engines. Arriving in the middle of the 1980s, this new mid-sized Mercedes designed by Bruno Sacco brought the company’s traditional styling hallmarks into a new era. This car would spawn coupe, cabriolet and estate variants as well as introduce four-wheel drive as an option and a few high performance V8 variants. The W124 would carry on into the mid-1990s, succeeded by the W210 E-class with its radical four-headlamp front profile.

Since we’re in the middle of winter in many parts of the US, we’ll start off by looking at this 1991 300E 4Matic for sale in California offered at no reserve.

1995 BMW 525i Touring

We’ve given the E39 touring a lot of love here at GCFSB, but the E34 is a classic, handsome longroof that would still serve the purposes of a family man who likes a little old-fashioned German luxury. Today’s black-on-tan example looks pretty darn good for a 20 year-old car, having covered roughly 5k miles per year. It may not be the sportiest of BMW wagons, coming with the 4-speed auto mated to the 2.5-liter M20, but it’s a great hauler that is a step up from the ubiquitous Volvo 240 alternative.

Redefining “Beater” – 1995 Audi S6 – REVISIT

After lingering and reappearing for some time at a nearly $7,000 asking price, the seller of this “beater” S6 has finally compromised and the car is now offered at no reserve. Our readers previously suggested it was a $3,500 car – bidding is currently around $3,000 with two days to go. How much will this winter weapon end up at?

1995 BMW 318ti

$_4 (1)

After reading a Car Magazine long-term test review of the new Caterham 160, my interest in base model vehicles was rekindled. Much like the rather basic BMW 518 that Nate featured back in 2013, this 318ti has caught my attention for similar reasons. When the E36 hatchback made its debut, I wasn’t particular fond of it. But time has changed my view of it, not in the least because it wasn’t the most common E36 3 series on US shores. It’s rare you come across a good example, as these were the most affordable car in the BMW range at the time, but sometimes you’ll find a hidden gem. Such is the case with this example equipped with a 5-speed manual for sale in Oregon.

1995 Porsche 911 Rauh-Welt Begriff #1

The sudden impact and influence of Nakai-san’s hand-crafted Porsche creations is both impressive and perhaps unprecedented. In part, that’s thanks to the proliferation of new media sources; go back to the 1980s, and no matter how cool his cars were it would have been much more difficult for him to become a name that most enthusiasts seem to know these days. We also live in a world which both is losing hand-crafted expertise but also celebrates it as the incredible skill it is. The cars he creates are racing inspired – a whole culture that exists in Japan but is undoubtedly taken to a much higher level by RWB. Stretched and slammed, the RWB cars are each unique but share heritage that resembles the racing 911 Turbo and GT2 models. They’re beyond replicas of race cars, though, defining their own unique identity. Not everyone likes the look, but nearly all can appreciate the attention to detail and incredible craftsmanship that goes into these cars:
