A classic 300D and 1000 miles of road

As an author of three books, I can say with some experience that your article was well-written and conveys exactly the excitement that comes with buying your first Benz.

But now you're doomed. Doomed to trolling all the MB forums, trolling multiple CR locations with "Mercedes" as your keyword, scanning parking lots for "For Sale" signs - all in the hopes of finding another "good one that only costs $3500, honey, and it's a wagon for you to drive! I can fix it up for you!".

Welcome to the MB world - it's a fun place to be.

Growing up with Fiats and Skodas.
We must be from the same neighborhood.
I sold my 83 300tdt mostly because of oil leaks and lack of ABS. Now I enjoy "new" 97 300D with 228,000 on it
Have fun. I hope you know good diesel antifreeze? I might need it here this week.
