New to the Benz World w/ '78 300D
I just bought a '78 300 D and plan to run it on Waste Vegetable Oil like the previous owner had. I am getting brake work done on it as we speak because the brakes lost pressure and were unresponsive twice this weekend, almost leading to my demise. Also, getting my mechanic (Village Motor Werks in Raleigh, NC) to put a new Emergency Brake in because the old was shot and to repair the vacuum hose because the car doesn't shut off on its own and the locks don't work. If anybody has any advice or comments or whatever please let me know. I've ordered a Chilton and a Bentley manual and hope to swan dive head-first into the wonderful world of Mercedes Benz. I already miss the car after only driving it for two days and can tell that this is the beginning of a long-term romantic relationship with her and I.
