My personal opinion is that the engine is too weak for the big car, and
that the manual gearboxes of Mercedes during that time were rather
uncomfortable. OTOH if you really want to shift by hand, a manual 260 SE
might be easier to find than a manual 300 SE

Well, with manual shift can't be much worse than an automatic 300SD, and I
quite like it! :-) Here in Canada we don't need no power anyways. Is the engine
in the 260SE
the same as in 260E 124? My brother has the german version, quite nice, should be
able to lug the extra weight of 126 no problem
