New guy

Hello, I'm new to the Benz community. A couple of weeks ago, I was looking for a car for my 19-year-old cousin who has come to live with my family. He stumbled across a 190D for sale along the side of the road, looked at it, and fell in love.

I looked at it, drove it, and could tell that EVERYTHING was wrong with this poor abused old black Benz. Yet it ran like a top! I did some research, found out parts are readily available and there's a solid online support community, and decided, "Why not?"

We've been polishing and tinkering ever since, and now I love the car as much as my cousin does. I can tell I'm going to have to find one for myself-he's not sharing!
