new to benzworld

Hey, thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Mike. I recently purchased a 94 E320 with 43k original miles. I'm a long time car enthusiast and currently have a 05 WRX STI and a 66 Pontiac GTO. This is my first Benz and I'm pretty excited. I'm in the Las Vegas area, so... other Mercedes enthusiasts in the area, you now have one more.

Welcome! Put up posters of your gallery. Your tech questions can be answered in the W124 section (below) so you could ask them there....

Another EXCELLENT resource is MercedesShop - Mercedes Benz Parts and Technical Information for tech, tire, wheel,detailing questions. Plus they organize gtgs togeether, I was just on one last weekend, over 25 cars and owners showed up. Way cool.

Your '66 Goat is one of the coolest of the muscle cars ever. Is it a coupe or a post 2 door?

My uncle in San Rafael Calif. bought a brand new 66 Post Goat with a 3 speed
(thought a 4 speed was too complicated for his wife), manual steering and brakes, silver with black interior from Bianco Pontiac in winter of 1965 That car was beautiful, I told him to let me know if he ever wanted to sell it someday.

Ran into him again in 1981, in San Rafael, he was driving a new Chevy Citation X11. I thought Whiskey tango foxtrot!!??? He said he had traded the Goat in on it, and when he drove up to the dealer in Novato, the Chevy salesmen all came running out, they all wanted to buy the Goat. Duuuuhh. Boy was I upset about that. Keep the GTO!!!

Thanks guys. I've had the Benz for a while now and really enjoy it. I'm really looking for an SL, but this seems to be good for now.

As for the Goat, it's a coupe... 389 bored out to a 402 with some "goodies" inside. It's a 4spd, I've had it for 10 years now.....

I'm already thinking about my next Mercedes.....
