Greetings from Detroit (we're still here!)
I have been interested in the finely crafted MB tanks for a long time. I am hoping to make the plunge, though the waters do look intimidating! Here are some pix of a '79 300D I am checking out Friday. The owner claims it has neither rust nor dings/dents and a spotless interior. He is a recent new owner of it himself but is being transferred overseas, he says. Has pw, pl and sunroof. Don't know the mileage (I keep forgetting to get this!). The guy wants $5,900 obo. I want to take it to a local German motors specialist for a compression test and a general PPI. I've done enough reading on the forum to know these are pokey but true; that the 300 is a bit more problematic than the 240 due to the power accessories. But whattya think?
Perhaps to see you soon as a fellow M-Ber!
