Meet Buttercup and Daisy, aka, "The Girls"
An 80 240D, Buttercup was found on Craigslist, with a broken ignition. It was tough to buy a car that you couldn't start, but Joe Columbo, friend and wonder car guy, said I could always sell the seats on Ebay to get my money back. Fortunately Joe replaced the ignition, and now she's up and about, pretty perky for an old girl.
Speaking of Ebay, it was from there that Daisy an 81 300td Vegetarian was "rescued" to join her sister in NNJ after spending a few years in NYC. Daisy is a little more sluggish than her older sister, despite having a engine block heater. She has trouble making it up a hill until she's been up for 5-10 minutes. Right now she is experiencing a little incontinency problem and I'm on the board figuring out how to replace her waterpump.
