Glad to be a member of your forum!

Greetings all! I've been an admirer of the Benz marque for some time, and have yearned for an older 'tank' of a Mercedes. I appreciate quality, and try to buy things that will last longer than I will. I finally got my hands on a one-owner 1987 300SDL in Teal with just over 167K on it. I've had a few issues (belt tensioner, and Climate Control malfunction), but all-in-all, this is an amazing vehicle. It is everything that I had hoped for and more -- what other car can you drive that is this BIG and SAFE, yet still gets roughly 30MPG on the road? What other car still feels as solid as this at 10 years, never mind the 23 on mine? I've enjoyed reading your posts, and hope to be here for a while.

Since I got my Benz, my wife has informed me that SHE needs one now (of course she wants something more sporty for herself). I guess I can't begrudge her that, as she is raising our 10 children! Now if only I could afford to get a Sprinter for the family...

Regards,


Rob
