First Benz.....

Hi there my name is Mark. As the title says, this is the wife and I's first Mercedes. (1977 450SEL) We are the 3rd owners @ 147k roughly. Her grandmother being the 2nd owner @ 90k and then originally purchase by some gentlemen in San Diego, CA. The car was well taken care of up until about 4 years ago when it was parked. A window got left down for 3+ years in a very hot/dry climate . So the seats are toast! Other then that she does need some tlc, (Body work, exhaust, tint, suspension, etc, etc) The joys of a "sitting" car. We don't want to do anything fancy. Just get her to top operating condition and enjoy some road trips I am also a VW owner, so I guess I knida have a thing for European cars. Especially, big gourmet ones like this one Anyhow, just wanted to find a place to meet fellow owners and find out anwsers to my question. Thanx for looking and here are a few crappy shot I got before the batteries died... Enjoy
