I've owned a MB for 15 years on and off. The 1985 380SEC mentioned in my sig, saved my brother and I from certain death. We were hit while stationary at traffic lights, by a fool in a new car who forgot were his brakes were, impact at 80-90kmh. I've got some photos if anyone is interested, before and after crash. While I've been searching for another I've been lurking on your forum. Well after searching the country far and wide I flew to Brisbane two weeks ago and drove home my new baby, 1983 380 SEC. I just want to say thank you to all who have provided me with the enthusiasm ( by reading your posts) for getting hold of another SEC, I'm glad I did.
