1978 280CE European model

Hey guys, just signed up to the site. I'm a Ford guy myself but my father was lucky enough to import his father's 78 280CE from Europe about 2 years ago.
The car's in great shape, has 90k Kilometers, White on Blue interior, 4 speed manual transmission. We've done a ton of work on it as far as getting it perfect, nothing really major. Spark plugs, fuel pump, filters, all the lubes etc... I'm a mechanic so I've had fun working on it.
Decided to get on the forum because in the past 2 months we've really been working on it just about 2 days a week.
I'll post on another thread some problems i've had with it so as to not weigh this post down.
I've seen lots of other classics on the site and they all look real sharp.
I'll try and get more pictures to post. The interior looks like it just came out the showroom.
Hope to get to know you guys.
