I just picked up this Euro Gen 2 1986 500SEC. I found this car about a year and half ago in California and told a friend about it who bought the car and bought it to Texas. My buddy is more a BMW guy and recently offered it to me. I already have a Euro 88 SEC but have always like the 5.0 motor so we did a deal. The engine is pretty strong but it needs lots of cosmetics and differed maintenance. I have maybe 4 parts cars worth of parts on my shelves an actual parts car so it should be in my wheelhouse. Driving it back , even in the condition its in reminded me of how much I liked driving a W126.
