New to MBForums. Des Moines, Ia 1973 240D

Hello all MB enthusiasts!

My namis is Mike. I hail from Des Moines, Iowa. I have always been a MB lover, but now, finally, decided to officially become a participant.

I have a 1973/74 Mercedes Benz 240D, w114. I bought it because it has also been converted to run on vegetable oil. I just love this car.

I do, however, wish to find a local mechanic, as there are sooo many things I cannot do (I know less than 1% about this car).

Thanks for having this great forum!
