Assorted Diesels




It's summer time and that means it's back work for me at Wolfgang's in Erie. The shop will likely yield a variety of posts in the coming months, but for now, we have these four diesel Benzes. 
The olive green car is a 1976 300 D with no reverse. It was aquired by Wolfgang from a customer who decided to finally stop spending money on the car. It ran when parked. The silver one is a 300 Turbo Diesel with 300,000 miles on the clock - also aquired from a customer who moved out of town and didn't want to take the car with him. It's rough around the edges but is a true testament to the build quality of these cars. The mint green one is also a 300 Turbo Diesel which actually still belongs to a customer, and finally, the beige car is the only 240 D of the bunch.

By the way, I found out that the mint-ish green colored turbodiesel runs on waste cooking oil. I found this out after I mentioned to Wolfgang that the car smelled like burning french fries.
