New Zealand 280SLC says Hi

Hi all,

I actually joined this forum way back in 2007, but have only now got around to posting - pretty slack I know.

Current Merc is a 1981 280SLC, RH drive, in Champagne Bronze. Bi-colour tan/cream cloth interior, red-brown trim (very 70's actually). One of the very last of 1118 in total made that final year, I don't know the LHD/RHD split, maybe someone does?

Imported into NZ very late in 1981, first registered in February 1982. I've had it for 5 years now, and it has just ticked over 200,000kms. My Dad had it before me but he eventually found it too hard to get in and out of as he approached his 80's - and those big doors are heavy.

There are a few other SLC's around Wellington, but all bar 1 are 350 or 450s.

For a long time before I got this car, I had a 1971 250 sedan. Lovely reliable old car, with the large white steering wheel and 4-speed manual. Originally from Kenya of all places. Rust in the firewall got her, sadly.

Anyway, glad to be properly here finally, and already getting some helpful advice.
