Greetings from Florida

Hello all
I a mlocated in sarasota and I just recently picked up a 1987 560 SEC, So I know I will be searching for all types of information. The car is in very good condition for the age. There are a few things I need to get done on it but I am hoping it will not be to bad. Sadely I don't forsee me keeping the car long I am going to be looking for a
60's-70's car like a 66 catalina or possibly a jeep. But than again the more I drive it the better I like it.

HI!! Welcome aboard!

Go straightaway to the W126 section of this board and look in and ask questions.

That is probably where the largest single concentration of enthusiastic 560SEC owners on the english language section of the internet meet to trade advice questions, news and parts.

See also the maintenance tips in the buyers guide for the 560SEC to be found in Welcome to MB Coupes!

It has some good care tips. You know the cost to run these coupes is not tragic if you get dialed in to good parts sources, have a good independent mechanic that knows the cars, and are willing to get junkyard parts now and then

Well kept it could last you forever, while providing comfort, safety, durability, reliability and prestige,,,,in spades

There is even a large contingent of 560SEC coupe enthusiasts in your area, SARASOTA that sometimes meet.

Thanks for the information. I ahve already been prowling around looking for fixes for things like the front ac vents have not air comming out. Stuff like that. I have no problem with junk yards and I search everywhere on the internet for parts for everything I have. I don't think there are many junk yard around here that will have that car but you never know. I would like to get with a local owner and compare fixes and what not.
