Hello, I'm a new member from Natal, Brazil.
Though I live in Brazil, I'm Portuguese and I know the Mercedes cars since I was a child and I lived in Africa, at that time.
We lived in Mozambique (MoÃ§ambique, in portuguese).
My father had a 180 D 1954 (Ponton model).
After that I had a 220 D, and now I have a 240 D W123 1981 in Portugal and a 300 D W115 1976, here in Natal.
This last model was sold in Europe with the name of 240 D 3.0 and in the USA as a 300 D.
Mercedes-benz had reserved the name 300 D, in Europe, to the new W123 model they were starting to make in 1976.
Now I'm going to finish.
I'm glad for becomming a new member, and I'm sorry for my poor English...
