Arrow R.I.P.- Dr. Marshall Booth

For any of you that have been part of the various MB online communities and mailing lists over the past few years, you'd know that Dr. Marshall Booth's name was synonomous with MB diesel technical discussions. Dr. Booth passed away on Monday at age 72. He was fondly referred to by some as "Der Dieseling Doktor", and was the MBCA Technical Advisor. He was especially known for being a big proponent of Mobil 1 oils for use in MBs, even before MB choose them as THE oil for their applications. Over a span of nearly 40 years, he owned quite a few models of MBs, racking on hundreds of thousands of miles, and a vast acquisition of technical knowledge of these cars. He didn't fool around when it came to technical discussions, his answers were clear and to the point. He knew what was best to keep these cars running the longest, good synthetic fluids, quality filters, clean fuel, and frequent Italian Tuneups. His obituary can be found here: Post-Gazette NOW
