Logging in from upstate New York
Hello, everyone. My nom de plume is Cyrano, after a personal hero of mine. Per the Administrator's instructions, a little about myself.
I live in upstate New York, and I've wanted a Model 126 type Benz for a very long time. Due to an unexpected windfall, I've finally achieved my dream. I now own a royal blue 1990 350SDL.
She's going to need a little cosmetic TLC. The paint will need retouching in a couple of spots, but there's no rust. The radio antenna is stuck in the 'up' position, but that's an easy fix. There's one split in the driver's seat, and I'll have to put a cover on it until I can figure out how to replace or repair it. But the important thing is that the engine, exhaust and transmission are sound, and the steering was completely rebuilt 100,000 miles back. Eventually I'll want to find a place that can refinish the rims, but that will keep.
I expect I'll be checking in with questions from time to time, how-to and where to find parts, mostly. I'm glad to be here, and I hope I'll have something to contribute to the community, in time.
