1993 Mercedes-Benz 300E 2.8

One of my favorite Mercedes-Benz nerd “fun facts” has to do with the 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300E. This chassis is quite possibly the most basic model you can find, but it is still loved by many due to the fact it will go for nearly forever as long as you take care of it. So what is the trivia about it? Well, in 1993 you could buy the 300E with an M104 2.8-liter inline-6 or an M104 3.2-liter inline-6. Back when numbers on badges meant something, this was a big deal. Not to mention a little bit of a horsepower difference as well.

Today, we have one of those 1993 model years with not the 3.2, but rather the smaller 2.8. M104 is M104, right?

1995 Mercedes-Benz 350GD

Once again the internet teaches me something new when I think I’ve seen it all. This is a 1995 Mercedes-Benz 350GD which is fixed with what looks to be a “high roof” body. These weren’t all that uncommon back in the W460 chassis given their utility, but I can’t remember seeing one on what looks to be a civilian 350GD. The seller says it was made for the Dutch Forestry Commission, whatever that is, but this seems like such an odd vehicle to use for such a purpose at that time. Either way, it is now up for sale in the UK of all places and the price is actually really good, as long as you can live without backseats.

1996 BMW 320i Touring

Until the current model year, BMW’s “what if?” pantheon was generally reduced to a few paths. What if BMW had given us the full M treatment on the 7-Series and 8-Series models? What if Chris Bangle hadn’t taken the styling reins? And what if they made an M3 wagon? Well, the last finally came true, but today’s car somewhat answers the question several generations earlier. That’s because what started here as an unassuming German-market 1996 320i Touring has become something more with the addition of M3 Lightweight-style bodywork and graphics, along with some neat 1995-specification Style 22 wheels. Inside we’ve also got a little M treatment, with M Rain cloth covering the seats. While it hasn’t had the full drivetrain swap, this one looks like a winner:

2022 Porsche 718 Spyder 000 Package

I’m a sucker for special editions and crazy packages, and today’s car is something I didn’t expect to see come from Porsche. What we have today is a 2022 Porsche 718 Spyder with the 000 Package. What exactly is that? 000 Magazine, which is a really great quarterly if you can swing the price, partnered up with the Porsche Exclusive department to offer a package that bundled a bunch of different options today. It was offered in four colors: GT Silver Metallic, along with paint-to-sample shades of Brewster Green, Albert Blue, and today’s color, Slate Grey. You also got the interior trimmed in Ascot Brown leather, LED Headlights with PDLS+, brake calipers in high-gloss black, black brushed aluminum trim, and illuminated doorsills in stainless steel with the 000 logo. If you opted for GT Silver Metallic, the pricing came in at $143,380. However, add another $13,000 for those other paint-to-sample colors. All in, you are probably around $160,000. Do you want exclusive? You’ll pay.

Winter Beater: 1995.5 Audi S6 Avant

Even though Fall has just crept into our lives, it’s not too early to start thinking about what this winter will look like. While my son has been convinced that global warming will mean that our New England outlook will be more like Florida’s forecast this year, the reality is that…well, it won’t. So why not consider a winter beater to survive the (lack of) roads around here?

Today’s 1995.5 Audi S6 Avant is, you’ll know if you follow these pages, quite a rare bird. Unfortunately, it’s seen better days in New England along its 272,000-mile journey, and consequently it’s rusty, crusty, and a bit worse for wear. But it’s got some neat engine upgrades that are keeping the ticker ticking – plus those knarly three-spoke wheels! So let’s take a look:
