mypicturedlifea photographic record of my life

'92 Mercedes 190 2.0

I had always wanted one of these, and when the opportunity came around to buy this one, I jumped at it.

I was perhaps a little too keen, and should have exercised more care when buying it...

It drove nicely, but was quite underpowered really - it was supposed to be a 2.0, but I did wonder if the engine had been swapped with a 1.8 at some point in time.

I'm just glad it wasn't an auto!

We had a persistent leak into the boot with this car, and eventually traced it to a large rust hole in the base of the rear windscreen.

This rust, and subsequent MOT failure encouraged me to get rid of it.
