Introducing Gr8star and Wim

Hi my name is Wim , my car's is Gr8star, the 86 420 SEL.
Gr8star is my license plate which follows me on every car, kind of like Air Force One call sign...
I always liked MB's, but did not get one until '91. This was a '71 250. Not the best example, but you make misstakes. It only takes one MB to follow another, so next is a '82 240D, followed next year by a '84 300D. That one I kept about 6 years untill I got the '87 300SDL in '99. Long time friend. I took it to the track (autocross) with great satisfaction of driving as it was designed for. Lots of looks and respect. No one ever seen a car like this going though the turn like that. Last year I got the '86 420 SEL as in my avitar. First duty was a day of frollicking on the track in Elkhart Lake, WI, Road America. WOW. It did very well. However it was not THE car I wanted, 280.000 miles, no AC, repainted.
Very reliable, but an interim car. This weekend it will be replaced with a '89 420 SEL. Owned by a little old lady, light ivory paint , Palamino int, only 42000 miles. Oh did I mention it has a Continental kit mounted? Oh yeah! No kidding!
It will be removed before I drive it home for sure.
I'm member of the MBCA since '99
I like to make the trophy's for the Club rallies
I do most of the work on my car myself.
Well I will have many stories to tell and I think this is a nice group where I feel at home.
Post more soon.
