Post Hi to All at BenzWorld!

Hello there, Everyone at BenzWorld.
I am a newbie, and would like to say hello from Ireland.
I am a big fan of Mercedes oldies, and at the moment have two here at home.
Over the past few years we have had a few, all well loved and enjoyed Benz cars, including a 190E, two W124 E250 Ds, one W124 E 300D.
For the past few years, have been driving a lovely 1993 W124 E220, it has never let us down once.
Before that, one of the E 250Ds gave us a long and happy time too, this one was affectionately known as "Grandad", and had over 300,000 miles on it when it was sold recently.
It smoked a bit, burned a little oil and dropped a tiny bit every night, but was a fantastic car all round, and never broke down in the 7 years we had it.
If anyone out there has one with those little "habits", may I highly recommend DUCKHAMS pre-1980 Oil which is mineral based and is rated at 20W50, as this really helped to keep "Grandad" running great!
Our latest addition to our family is a lovely 17 year old W140 300SE in brilliant silver.
We bought it recently to replace Grandad, and it is going lovely.
I hope that by joining Benzworld, I may pick up plenty of tips and advice from other Benz owners in order to keep mine running great! Also share any experiences we have had with ours along the way.
Thank you for having me as a new member, I look forward to being part of the family!
Cheers from Ashley
