New Intro - 300SD Owner

Hello Benzworld community! I've been a registered member for several months, though I've benefited from the incredible resource of information here for much longer!

I owned a 1980 300D Euro spec (sold) and 1971 240D (sold) previously. Today my daily driver is a 1981 300SD w/ 201,000 miles. I purchased the car on eBay earlier this year - flew to San Diego, CA and drove it cross-country back to DC (without mechanical inspection or much pre-planning). Happy to say I made the trip without incident. The car is close to perfect now, though I have a short list of projects still to do: A/C not working, rear shocks & suspension, cruise control, and fuel sending unit cleanup/replacement. Otherwise, she's immaculate inside and out.

I'd like to offer my sincerest thanks to all of you who have shared your stories, knowledge, and expertise here for all to benefit from. It's a great community of real nice, knowledgable people - and I'm glad to belong!
