Howdy from '78 450SL

Bought the car I had a crush on in high school and got her delivered 3 days ago...she's really pretty. It's my first Benz and hoping to keep her for many many years.

Not gonna use her as a daily driver and she is parked amicably next to hubby's Factory Five Racing MKII in the garage. He got his, I got mine Marriage is all about balance & compromise, right?

She's in great shape and appears to have been well loved, however, I bought her sight unseen from a guy who picked her up at auction so I have no repair records.

I am planning on making the critical engine, wiring, a/c TO DO list first, and then restoring/replacing interior components that are worn out and then giving her a new show car finish...she's already had one, but it looks aged now.

Anyone with same car, I'd love to hear from you! Thanks y'all.
