Post My new (old) 1974 240D

I'm really excited about my new toy. I just purchased a 1974 240D. There are some things that need to be fixed on it, but nothing that I think is unreasonable for a vehicle of this age. I am a college student, and drive to school and work every day. After doing a little research on this car, I found that it is a model known for its ability to put on millions of miles, literally! And, to find that many of the repairs are relatively cheap, well, you can imagine my excitement, being a poor college student. I plan to slowly restore the car and eventually get a different car with more modern amenities, but in the meantime, this is my one and only car. If anyone has some tips or pointers about this model, please let me know. I will probably post more info as I start fixing my car up.

It's nice to be a proud owner of a Mercedes-Benz automobile!

Note: Pic isn't current, but is of this car. Paint has faded slightly, among other minor things.
