Gday From Australia

Gday all, well I'm about to purchase my first Mercedes this week. A Nice and clean 220D from 1971

it's White with red leather interior and i can't wait.

Is there a general maintenance tips ect: thread for these older Mercedes cars as i'm completely new to these machines of beauty

I plan to run this car on used oil. filtered and mixed with white spirit(3% ratio) ( non kero based)

Being in Sydney, Australia i'll be able to not worry about the cold weather freezing the majority of the year

Anyway, it's 4am here and i can't sleep i'm so excited about picking it up in a few days
