New to the forums

Hi all, New to the forums here. I've owned my 240D since 2000. She's a 1979 U.S. model that was purchased new in late 78 by my grandparents while they were in Germany. They actually watched the car roll off the assembly line. Current mileage is over 300k, and unfortunately has been sitting the last 5 years in covered storage with a blown head gasket. I didn't have the cash to fix it and didn't want to sell it. Recently pulled the car out of storage and plan to swap in a OM617 engine.
