" This telling of the story of Mercedes-Benz's ubiquitous W123 is as about as complete as you could hope for. From concept and design to legacy and buying one today, this book is exhaustively researched and fantastically illustrated. An excellent, in-depth book on a very broad, interesting subject. "
