EYES ON THE STREET
Read the wikipedia, folks.This is an absolute frankenstein car.
I would pay good money for this car; I absolutely love it. From the great wheels to the lion on the logo, this car is perfect. (Now, if only it wouldn't break down so much...)
I had a 1990 Oxford Edition 827sl for 5 years. By that time (5th model year for the Sterling) many of the bugs had been worked out. They were MUCH better than the '87-88 825SLs. It did have annoying things that went wrong but my experience was that it wasn't really any less reliable than a late '80s Acura Legend (which I've also had several of)
