Howdy all...

I am off to purchase a 1985 300D this evening. I have been looking at lots of 123 series cars and have sort of settled on this one. I was about to purchase an 83 240d but found it a little too gutless for my needs. My only experience with owning a MB was over 30 years ago when I had a 1963 220. I loved that car but at the time was unable to afford the price of a top end rebuild.

I have been lurking around this message board for a few weeks in prep for this purchase. I'm not bad with a wrench and quite happy to know you are all out there somewhere. The MB community seems a tight, knowledgable one and I may bother you from time to time with new owner questions.

I'm hoping I've made a good choice in this car. It is a turbo diesel model which seems, from what I read, to have the power to "get out of it's own way".
I have been to car shows and find nothing out there that turns me on like this car. I have owned a few new cars in this life and pretty much hated them all. At any rate, thanks ahead of time for letting a new guy in...
