I drove one and I drove a 124 with the same engine.  The LWB 126 was definitely 
underpowered by comparison.  It would certainly go high speed.  But, it felt 
like I was pushing the engine to its limit too frequently.  In the 124, the 
same engine always felt like it was cruising without straining to keep up.  It 
was like driving a four cylinder on the highway.  Yes, it will keep up.  But, 
it was straining to do it.

I always laugh when you guys make fun of the 300SE for being underpowered, 
Kaleb especially since he'll then remember fondly his 240D...

Whoops.  Ignore my prior email.  I didn't realize the headgasket had been done 
already.

It is VERY nice.  But, its going to need head gaskets soon.  At least that has 
been my experience with that engine in the 126 chassis.  Its too underpowered 
for me to think it's a good setup.  I think its too much car for an engine that 
worked great in the 124.

It's nice but overpriced especially with faded paint and a big dent in the door.
