Long-time listener, first-time caller! Not really.

Owned twenty or so of these beasts since I bought my first - '84 SD - in July 2003. All diesels, all but two W123 cars.

I'm a manager at a locally-owned small business, by trade, but also enjoy photography, cycling and, most importantly, being a dad to my two sons aged two, and four.

Started working at the dealership back in the midwest when I was nineteen. They brought me on as the parts delivery driver, when I left I was a painter in the body shop. Learned from a guy trained at MB in (then) West Germany.

Largely self-taught as a mechanic, I developed an interest in auto mechanics while watching/helping my dad work on his '56 Beetle, which he owned and drove until I was six.

I'm currently the proud owner of three of the aforementioned diesels: '79 T, '83 and '87 sedans. Though new to the W124 chassis, I'm learning my way around. Done a small mountain of work to this bloomin' car!

Righteeeoo, that about does it.
