Post my first Merc - 1986 300E 5sp

Hello All,
Finally signed in as a member after reading so many great comments about these super cars. 1 year ago I purchased my daily driver, a 1986 300E with 5sp shift, an original Canadian model (I live in Vancouver, Canada). Bought the car for $1000, and it had 350,000 kms on it... apparently just broken in so they tell me. It has had it's issues, and gets on my nerves sometimes, but is still the most fun I could have doing highway commuting to work! I now have the mileage at 370,000 kms and climbing.
The car is Anthacite grey with light grey leather, and has held up amazingly well with just a couple scratches and needing a great bit of cleaning as I go.

Look forward to hearing all the details about these grand cars from the 80s

Britannia Beach, British Columbia
