Smile Newbie with 1980 240D...

My dear old Dad decided that at 96 he maybe shouldn't drive anymore. Whew! So now I've "inherited" his 29 year old 240D with only 70K miles on it. His mechanics told him that most of the car's problems were caused by the fact that he wasn't driving it enough.
A car like this is a lifetime keeper. It will require some help from a forum like this. The dozens of little problems that exist have all been solved by some of you before so I know you can help me. And I look forward to helping some of you if I ever can (I'm an optometrist...any eye questions?) From this forum I've already found the answer to my most pressing issue...rainwater leaking into the footwell from behind the battery.
So thanks for all you've done...and all the help going forward. Drive on in style!
