Anyone know any one with an old Merc 123 or 124 series saloon or estate lying in their yard that they want rid of?

Myself and Bohall are doing the www.scallyrally.co.uk in september and are looking for a car, only catch is we have to buy it for €150 or less!

We as team 76 want an old merc or at least something german, a motorway couch to take on the trip! BMw's are not really our bag but may have to do, Old Audi or Passat may also be in the running but we think a Merc would be cool pimped and comfortable! An estate would be good perhaps as were driving from Wicklow to Madrid and back!

So Merc 123/124, 300, 500's saloon or estate, passat estate, or audi 100, does anyone know of anything someone wants rid of, car must be fixable if a non runner and the good for 4000miles!

XJ6 might have a slim chance and a roller would be cool!!!!

The Rally is in aid of Barnardos, but we're gonna try raise a few quid for an Irish chartiy,(undecided yet, kids hospital.cancer research, any ideas?) so we hope someone will go easy on us on the price of the car to get us going!

Sound cool, the bikers do some stuff for them! We havnt discussed anything yet, only its probably the only time lads like us might actually get to do sumfin for someone else, alot of the other teams are doing it for other causes! I was going to advertise it in Slick mag and go to all the Car shows / Drift events etc to collect money, its only an idea at the moment!

ya the 260se is a saloon. big yoke too.

no idea of a paint job. i was talking to a guy who owns a insurance brokers
and he reckon if you dress up ur car and crash over along the insurance
company will tell you f**k off cause ur in a rally even though it's only
cruising along. might just get some small stickers and put them on doors.
not too sure yet.

we're thinking that we'll go from rosslare as we have enough of a trip to
Dover from there besides going to Dublin and then to Dover. we're probably
gonna come back to cork from thingy (cannot remember port) in France. No
point in us travelling across England again.

how many of ye are going and in how many cars? i assume ye are going from
dublin?
