Just a little Intro

Hi All,

New to the MBZ world & just wanted to say "Hi" before I bombard you all with questions on my newly acquired 86 560 SEL. Greetings from Phoenix, AZ.

Welcome aboard, Gerry.

The 126 is a venerable classic, I'm sure you'll find lots of good info in the W126 forum.

And Phoenix, eh? My old stomping grounds. Good thing you like heat!

Take care and enjoy the ride,

Welcome aboard, the 560SEL is a great car, flagship of the line when it was new, and they are still great cars to own.

The W126 sedan section and MercedesShop - Mercedes Benz Parts and Technical Information tech section are great places to jump in with questions on the car, and there are people there who REALLY know and love these cars, lots of good information.

This page was written a long time ago, in 1999, but still has some good tips on acquistion and maintenance. Oriented towards the coupes (560SEC) but worth a look. I helped write it, with Satish Tummala. a real expert.

Post up pictures of your new car, put a signature with a little bit about it,note your vehicle and location below the avatar, then ask away!!
