Second Benz After Dump Truck T-Boned My First

Hi all.

I just bought my second Mercedes yesterday. I found a '91 300SE with 155,600 miles for only $2K. The body and interior are in good condition but I'm hoping the AC only needs charging up.

Ten years ago a dump truck t-boned me while I was in my '82 240D Mercedes. I was looking at that dump truck's grill through my drivers side window. Of course, it was totaled, but I walked away. Actually...I drove that 240D another 15 minutes back to my house. The doors still opened and shut properly.

I had just gotten that 240D tuned up (it had over 250,000 miles on it). It was in fine running condition and ready to go another 100,000 miles. But it did it's main job and saved my life.

Now I am hoping to get some good information on keeping my new (to me) '91 300SE in good condition.
