Have some time to waste on the way into the weekend? Do we have the forum thread for you!
PHer 'r129sl' describes the work put into his Mercedes 124 as titivation. With the laundry list of parts he fixed, replaced and upgraded in his first couple of years with the car being longer than the average PH forum thread, though, titivation seems like something of an understatement.
