New Member Intro cheers !!

hey all::::

I just inherited what I believe to be a 75 280 Benz in absolutely perfect mint condition with just over 40,000 original miles on her.

I am from Northern Colorado, car was stored indoors in a climate controlled room with lots of brothers and sister vintage cars. I have always been a car nut, so this is the one they left for me.......

Not sure what to do with the car, I have no storage space and the car cannot be left out in the hot dry Colorado sun....maybe I should just give it to my daughter for her first car, would be sad to see any type of dent or scratch on the car though, it should be in a museum somewhere.

Anyhow, great to have found this site while I still have the car I will keep in touch and learn about what I now own.

Cars I currently have: 1969 Toyota Corona, 1976 Toyota Celica GT Liftback, 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40, 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 red, 1988 Toyota Town Ace Van wagon, 1985 Toyota 4-Runner, 2001 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 4x4, 2003 VW EuroVan...many more vintage toyota's.....

I would NOT give that to my kid under any circumstances. That is a true collectors car, NOT a daily driver. You should bring it to a major auction house (Barrett Jackson) and sell it to someone who can continue to store it correctly.
