Hello, all. I've been a member for a while now but I'm wanting to create more of an impression so I'm introducing myself. I love MB in nearly all shapes and forms, but especially anything made from 1980 to 1995. The boxy styles appeal to me more than the svelt contours of modern cars.

Right now I've got a white 1998 E320 with 143,000 miles on it. It's still in decent shape, even after having been put through the ringer. My parents owned it and shuttled three boys around for five years before I got it. The engine has some challenges, though. The excessive heat caused a vacuum line to melt, and as a result the air intake system still has some fixing left. Unfortunately, my budget doesn't allow me to give it the attention it deserves, but I try little things here and there. I always keep synthetic oil in it, though, and clean the fuel valves once every now and then. The incredible thing is that it's driven well for over six months with the check engine light on.

My real dream is to own a 1988-89 560SL. The 380SL would be cool, too, but the 560 is the goal. I'm only 22, so I haven't got any dependants, so I'm hoping to save up and get it before the end of 2010. Gotta get some driving in before the world ends in 2012, right?
