    My first G was a 1984 280GE which I ordered built new and picked up in Stuttgart. The shot is on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road in Austria shortly after we took delivery.

    I kept it from 1984 to 2002 and a total of 111,000 miles. Unmodified, it took me to some pretty neat places.

    My second and current G is a Europa Int'l G500 NMLE which I purchased used in 2002 and have added 67,000 miles till now. It, too, is stock except for 16" Atik wheels.

    In my experience, the G is quite capable right out of Graz.

    Here's a few shots of my 93 300GD. I did the conversion from dangerous gasoline to sweet smelling diesel. I'm using the OM603, 6 cylinder turbo.
