Hi! Every one,Walt here. A New Member to the Forum. I am Australian aged 56 and live on a 150 acre farm outside of Canungra (Gold Coast Hinterland) in Queensland Australia.
I am the proud owner of a lovely classic "Old Timer". A 1978 280 SEL W116 Sedan. I bought my Merc about a year ago of a guy down the gold coast who was a wealthy businessman from New South Wales.He keeped the car in the garage for his wife to go shopping about 3 times a year when they visited their Condo for a week or so.She complained to him the car was too Big. so he got her a little buzz box, and sold me this wonderfull Cruiser for $1600 AUS. It had a brand new air con plant/New tires/ no rust/ 8 month regoand ran like a Dream.It had done 320,000 klms. ive only done another approx4,000 so far. It was a long held dream of mine for years to own a lovely old Merc,and this one fell into my lap.It has been a great experience thus far, learning about Mecedes Benz.and tinkering with my Old Gal, adding some minor personal touches here and there.
Nice to be able to join your Forum and look forward to being a part of it Kind Regards Walt
