So there aren't any fires in Australia at the moment, just MCM driving around in a bio-diesel Merc.
Who else remember when the title said "meth injection"

To anyone interested. That OM617 engine was not originally turbocharged. The turbo engine didn't come to market until 1980 and only in North America so I get why an Aussie would just add a turbo to a normally aspirated engine. Nor is that a rotary fuel pump. By the looks of it he has a DieselMeken modified inline pump which runs about $1,200 with shipping. So nice deal if they had kept the car. The normally aspirated OM617 will survive with a little boost, but doesn't have the special oil cooled pistons, oil squirters to cool the pistons or sodium filled exhaust valves. Adding an intercooler would really help it live longer also.

You guys should have kept this for the engine alone. OM617 will do 1.5M Km. It already had the upgraded mechanical pump and big turbo. Honest to goodness armageddon car. No computer needed to work the rail, will work even after a solar flare or EMP, when all the Haltechs get cooked. So simple and can make big(ish) power. My long-term dream build is one of these (or the OM602 with new mech pump) in an old solid-axle hilux. MISSED OPPORTUNITY!!

You stub your cigarette out in the ash tray... all the ash goes out of the window when you smoke (and then hot ash goes back into the car and burns holes in the back seat) as you drive....

Not sure on the regulations in Australia, but as an American I gotta love that they're so nonchalant about the "device" in the ash tray at 3:24 Always figured they would be burners, but the verification is priceless. Marty and Moog would be awesome to have hang out and work with in the shop. 😁 Oh.... and you durry? with the right hand cause the steering wheel should be on the left hand side of the car 😝 although I would own a rhd car though just because I love the idea of having something more sophisticated than most of the heartless and crap daily vehicles we have here in the states

My old Jag XJ6 SIII had 2x ashtrays in the centre console, my integrale and all the other shit heaps I own have a single ashtray in the centre console, you dont need an ashtray next to the window as the window works as an ashtray, saying that the integrale has ashtrays in the rear doors. Thats completely fried my brain.

i have a 85 300D, I am been driving it for 12 years and I just use a centrifuge to take the oil down to .1 micron then dump it in the tank, No "walter white" needed. Then when it colds or dump in some normal diesel... Works great :) Long live the W123 !
I can game or whatever
Just bought one a 79 300d for £1000 and it was dry store from 91 so it's basically new
