Post Newbie Signs In..

Hello To All!
Im selling my perfectly good 1971 250 mercedes benz with 61,000 original miles on it, and replacing it with a 1977 240D with 88,000 original miles on the odometer.
what a difference in performance between the two!

The 1971 250 was gas, (20 MPG) auto trans, pretty quick off the line & uphill, and could turn on a dime with new Bilstein Shocks.

The 240D, although its like new, is diesel, (better MPG), manual trans, slow off the line, and is a slug going uphill. What I'm really not used to is the sloppy handling around curves
I would like correspond with other 240D Owners to discuss this vehicle's mechanical issues.

Also, anyone interested in displaying their vintage Benz in an upcoming Collector's Show in N.J. 2009, contact me.
