... from Old York City

Joined this morning, York, UK; now onto my second Mercedes, a 300sel with a badge on the back that says carat (?... still looking into that) and a damaged engine. Have owned a 560 sel in years past, and have found the newer 300 flat and powerless (even before it broke), and they no-longer supply a turbo conversion kit for it. Looking at a larger engine instead, but having problems (you can probably imagine, as this will be my first engine swap). Keep getting told it should be easy, but then the fear sets in.

Always loved the w126's, but not sure why... something about the shape. Perhaps its just because the bonnet could double as an aircraft carrier flight deck...
