Another new guy from Nebraska

Recently acquired a new (older) hobby vehicle and my first MB. 1999
C280 with 110K plus miles and in good shape. I will spend most of the
summer doing TLC on those things that go south after 100K but it should
be ready to roll full time in August.

Other cars that I have restored include 49 Oldsmobile Model 76 2Dr (long gone unfortunately) , 71 Chev El Camino ( My favorite that I still have), 1958 Edsel Ranger 2Dr (Still in progress) and an assortment of 50 & 60's GM products for resale.

So far the MB equals or exceeds my expectations for a MB product and look
forward to dealing with those little issues that always arise.

Welcome to Benzworld and I hope you have thought about a transmission fluid change on that car.
