New 87 560SL Owner

Hi folks,
Just dropping in to say hi!

I've wanted a R107 ever since moving to California from Ontario and realising cars can actually last longer than 5 years. Just moved back to San Francisco from London (UK) and figured the time was right.

I utilised a local auto broker, to do my search and ended up with a burgundy 1987 560SL with 73,000 miles, from near San Antonio, Texas. It's not mint but is in great shape and was well cared for. Everything seems to work except the clock, cruise control, and antenna switch (antenna goes up -- just can't get it down!)

Looking forward to reading the forums and learning more about the car, and maybe getting my hands dirty fixing the little issues. Any and all advice is greatly welcomed.

-- Bill

PS -- Highly recommend the services of the broker, Dave Sutch (My Car Guy: Welcome!).
