I'm a semi-retired stockbroker who loves cars - working on them, driving them and even keeping them sometimes.
I live in the sunny part of Oregon - the southern part.
I owned a 190e 2.3 16V years ago and missed it so when I saw this one on Craigslist I flew to Seattle and bought it. It is an 1987, 164,000 miles with valves, head gasket and timing chain recently done. Since the interior is so good (I don't think he ever had passengers) I think I'll repaint it.
The mechanicals are excellent - so far. There is an exhaust rattle - hopefully not a trans issue as it goes away when I depress the clutch, the gas gauge and CC don't work (I've been searching threads for answers already) and there is a small cracked dash fascia piece around the drivers side side window vent.
My main loves are offroading/rockcrawling and Land Rovers and you can see that in my car list.
1987 MB 420 SEL (going to sell)
1987 190 e 2.3 16V (just bought)
1991 Range Rover - heavily modified - gutted, rollcage, geared, amoured for rockcrawling
1994 Land Rover Defender 90 300 TDI- setup for rockcrawling/trails
2001 GMC 3/4 ton 4 wd pickup - for pulling a horse trailer
2004 Range Rover - my wife's
2007 Alpine Coach motorhome for pulling Land Rovers
