Mercedes Benz - very late 1993 Mercedes Benz 190D 2.0 - Garage

Brilliant little car, 2.0 OM601 N/A, 75 mules, somewhere between 120-125Nm of torque, slow as f**k but it being RWD fools you that it goes faster than it really does, slower than a 68hp Mitsubishi Lancer, 5 speed stick shift, likes dancing from side to side in winter, indestructible. Runs smooth like butter despite running on a mix of regular and tractor diesel (1l of regular : 2l of red/tractor/industrial fuel). One day, when this engine fails, an OM602 will get under that hood… …but it doesn’t seem like that day is anywhere near tho…
Dirty in the pictures but it’s crystal clear now.

UPDATE: My dad crashed it shortly after my 17th birthday, then we sold it to our neighbor who got it running again and after a few months sold it.
