FNG from virginia

Hello everyone, ill be honest up front that im not yet a proud owner of a MB, but im doing homework on the idea. Im basically here to pick the brains of people who own, love, and wrench on these cars and know them better than any wikipedia article ever could. Im hoping to find out as much as i can about the diesel merc's made in the 80's, to make an educated purchase of one of these cars. I own a 1989 IROC-Z, and an ex military M1009 Diesel Blazer. neither of which is great on gas, and neither is really great for a date. The camaro being a project car, and the truck being... well, a military truck. Im hoping one of these old diesel mercedes will solve those two problems, and allow me to save some money by running WVO and biodiesel instead of paying at the pump. Right now im looking at a few diesel coupes, but i dont want to dive into something i dont know all that much about.
