New Member 1994 W140
Hello from Alabama! I'm excited to be a new member. I've been reading the threads for a couple of weeks and have been impressed by the amount of knowledge that's been shared. I think I've found the "mother ship" for true Mercedes lovers!
I've just purchased my first Mercedes. My husband and I are the only drivers in the house and we have four other cars. We weren't looking for the car... it found us. The original owner mentioned that he was thinking of selling it and we just couldn't pass it up. It's a 1994 S500 with all OE.
We have two young children and I've recently retired my position as a CEO to stay at home with the kids. Since I'm the one with more time, the Mercedes will be my "pet project" as my husband nervously looks on.
My mechanical skills are weak but I think they're stronger than my husband's! I'm an only child and my mother gave me just one job every weekend: "Go watch your father and make sure that he doesn't burn down the house or blow up a car." It's amazing how much you learn by babysitting your dad! I often thank my Mom for the skills that I acquired over the years.
Since seasoned mechanics are challenged by these cars, I'm guessing that it will take Mommy all of 5 minutes before she's saying words that the kiddies can't hear... I guess I'll do the majority of the work while they're at school!
I look forward to meeting you all and hope to eventually contribute information of value!
