1st Benz

We just bought our first Mercedes today! We found a 1979 450SLC at a local dealer. 161,000 miles, few mechanical issues, runs and drives great. Looking forward to being a member of the Benz community!

Congratulations and welcome to the Benz family!
The low mileage is impressive given the age - and the beauty of Benz designs is the quality of timeless elegance.

I'm on my third Benz... and the miles have never been a problem - just take care of the engine. (I recently sold my 1992 300E with +230k - still drove like new.)

Happy motoring!
