Talking Hello from Southern Oregon

My names Ryan and its a pleasure to be a part of this site and forum. I just bought my 2nd MBZ, a 1988 420SEL I found sitting covered in a barn way out in the sticks. Its super clean inside and out, a lil over 120K miles and they guy wanted $1000 for it. I gave him the cash and took it home, then I found out why it was $1000. It overheats like crazy! I had a hell of a time getting the new thermostat in, broke a bolt off in the housing but it finally worked out with the awesome advice and help from a few guys on the forum! Turns out its the fan clutch but thanks again fellas!

I bought the car because I thought it would be fun to drive it out to my next job in Houston TX. I need a lil more 'oomph' than the 190D. I'm a commercial diver by trade and I travel a lot, looking forward to putting plenty of miles behind the 420! Its gonna be perfect!
