I was trying to think of a more creative thread title...but could not at the moment...sorry.
Anyway, just picked up my first MB recently, 1984 300D TurboDiesel, with only 331K on it. Awesome car! I originaly bought it as a winter car, but the more I drive it, the more I would like to restore it. Have been steadily replacing and fixing things (tie rods, ball joints, CV boots, air cleaner mounts etc.). Now I just have to convince the wife cosmetic restoration is worth while
One of the most amazing things so far is the kind of milage I am getting. Probably better than some new sub-compact cars!
