New owner, Vintage mercedes!

Good Morning!

I am a new owner of a 1979 Mercedes Benz 300SD Turbo Diesel sedan in pristine condition! I know nothing about the car so I wanted to join the forum to learn a bit about my new toy.

The car lived it's life in sunny Florida, it's never seen the snow of Upstate, NY. I have it in a storage unit right now, but she is coming home at the end of the month....I have to replace the power window motor for the drivers side, change all the fuel lines and filters, and give her a good tune up. I also have to figure out the best way to store the car over the winter. I started her up yesterday and the glow plugs and engine fire right up and purr!

About other car is a Honda Element, I rescue dogs and do dog transports and the Element is the perfect dog car.

Hopefully nobody minds me asking dumb questions because I am sure I will have alot of them!
