It seemed to be it was easier to keep up with vehicle changes year on year, mainly because there were less models populating manufacturer portfolios. As much as a petrolhead as I am, I can’t keep up with all the new model variants cropping up. Many seem to be a mashup of existing models meant to exploit every little automotive niche that might exist. But in reality, they are just variations on a particular modular platform. I still look back longingly to the days when the Mercedes-Benz lineup consisted of mainly the C, E, S and SL classes. It was simpler times and cars like this final year W124 E320 Cabriolet contained much of the DNA that made these cars popular with the monied set. This example for sale in Denver is a one owner car, showing under 50,000 miles on the clock.

This looks to be a no excuses example, but one minor thing I spotted that will need sorting is the antenna. These are often a weak point, but a simple fix in the grand scheme of things. Also, it would be worth scanning the records to see if the wiring harness has been replaced, as this is a known issue on these late model W124s. The asking price for this one given the condition and mileage is very reasonable, as good E320 Cabriolets can be seen hovering in the mid to high $20k range on average. This one, though, is priced to sell.
