Over thanksgiving, my wife was driving my beloved 1983 MB 300 SD when another driver ran a red light and struck the front right corner of our car. No surprise, the Benz held up remarkably well and protected my wife and kids. Unfortunately, the car is considered a total loss due to the cost of new parts even though the damage is easily repairable. I actually bought the car back from the insurance company as I couldn't stand to see it go to a jink yard, it is too good of condition. My brother in-law actually found me a complete parts car just outside of Austin but I don't have the time to dismantle and repair myself.

Now about the car...I'm the second owner, have owned it for 2 or 3 years at this point. The car is in excellent condition, 155,000 miles and always maintained by the MB dealership, no cracks in the seats or dash, no major leaks, great tires, paint is a repaint job which is still pretty good. I could go on about the positives of this car.

Any suggestions or ideas on what I could/should do with the car? At this point, I'm thinking selling it to someone who loves these cars as much as I do is the best option, hopefully they could repair and drive it for many years to come.
