New to Benz, but love all cars.

hello all,
the name is Jon. I recently acquired my aunt and uncles 1986 420 sel.
I wanted the car since I was 10 as thats when they first bought it.
Got the chance the other day. "Cars been sittin" my uncle said, "And I cant get it to crank." "Hows $200 sound?".

It sounded real damn nice!!

So here I am, a little fresh gas and a check of all the fluids and she fired right up. I spent all day cleaning the pollen and tree sap. I havent even drove it (cuz the tires are dry rotted and the rotors need turning) and Im already in Love.

Heres a couple pics from the other day, I'll post another of it cleaned up tommorow.

Awesome score!

I just paid about $750 yesterday for the 30,000 mile service on my '90 560SEC and I am not complaining: the car looks and runs great!!


Be sure and check the very friendly and VERY busy W126 forum for more information about these wonderful cars.

A hearty welcome awaits you there!

Be sure and keep all the leaves and debris out of the area below the windshield and battery, a wekly clean out is good, if the car sits outdoors or under trees.


Failure to do so can cause engine fires!!! It has actually happened --even to W126 members on here!!!!
