1979 450sl newbie here

Well, not a newbie to the car. I have owned her since 1997. She is beige with bamboo interior with a little over 193k miles on her.

I guess you could say she is a twenty footer. From twenty feet away she looks great. Get closer and you see why I want a paint job. I placed 15 inch rims on her a number of years ago and damn does she look good.

She has sat in my garage for a little over a year and half with out being started. I have done some maintenance to get her going but she still overheats. I did post a new thread regarding her issues.

Any who, good to be here and have already learned a lot.

Look forward to reading more.
