Gerry Proudman ASKED THE GUIDE

State of origin

I RECENTLY bought a 1988 Mercedes 190e. It is in very good condition, but the information stickers are in Japanese. I have compared it with similar models and it does seem to be not so well furbished. I am told it was made for the Japanese market. Is this so and where could I find out more about it?

CARS 15 years or more old can be imported without complying with the Australian Design Rules that applied at the time of manufacture. It's a loophole to allow enthusiasts to bring in classic and historic cars. Unfortunately, it has opened the door for people to import commercial quantities of cars that don't fit the definition of a classic car. Try a Mercedes-Benz specialist for details of the 190e. The loophole is being closed.
