Talking yep, 300td project

new here and new to the benz experience,
purchased a 1983 300 td in pretty rough shape, paid $250 for it, the previous owner said it ran fine before it sat,215k,new tranny at 95k, sat for 3 years. flat tires, the back window busted out by a falling tree,tailpipe dragging, bumps, MOLD throughout the entire inside, small creatures with families, rust, corrosion, you name it. Towed it home and began the process... drained,flushed,filled,lubed,charged, and she fired right up. bit of smoke but not bad, replaced the belts and a few hoses, new thermostat, new tires, new rear window (paid more for it than the car+tow+registration).and much much more
She runs like a dream! still have a ways to go with it, but just got back off the first road trip taken, 350 miles in the heat and hills of central-northern-eastern California. i think I got a good deal?

Welcome to the forum
figure how much you spent on the car and repairs / how long you own the car
you probably did very well.
