Red face Bambi from Florida

Hello, Just wanted to introduce myself and my cars. A couple years ago I decided to save the planet with buying an Old Diesel Mercedes for $2,500 and 22,000 dollars later I'm about to have the transmission totally rebuilt and the parts of the car that haven't been painted- painted. That's this years remaining projects after just replacing the AC Blower motor. Hope I'm not boring you, but there's always something, like the vacuum lines are acting screwy and the locks don't all work and the front AC vents are acting strange. After purchasing the 1980 300SD, of course I was so excited I stupidly found a 1973 220D. The problem is I luv my cars and I work and seem to live to keep them alive. I hope you are entertained with this true story, most of you probably can relate to luving your cars this much, many people can't. If you need any wonderful used or new parts for your Mercedes, I am happy to make any suggestions-I have created a database of the best junkyards that seem to have what I want if I can't find it at the local U Pull It in Fort Lauderdale. By the way I teach children Nutritional Cooking in Miami and car stuff is my addiction and money pit- when I was a teenager it was old chevy's now I've graduated to Old Mercedes Diesels!http://www.benzworld.org/forums/imag...ies/tongue.gif

Thanks Bobby,

Hi Bambi, welcome to the forum.
If you take a look at the user info, most members have their vehicle info listed. If you go to your profile and fill it out, we can see yours, too! (cars, that is...)
