Newbie with a 240D


I just purchased a 1982 240D with manual transmission and windows.
This is my first Mercedes but I have two old GMC 6.2L diesel trucks that I keep running (Suburban 1988 & Jimmy 1983) with the help of the internet.

Attached is a photo of the new baby.
She has 197K on the odometer and some rust.
I plan to use her as a daily driver not a show car.
She drives and stops straight and has working AC and a valid NJ Inspection.

I do my own repairs whenever possible.
I think I will be searching and posting the W123 forums on a regular basis.

I look forward to participating in the BenzWorld forum.
