Hello!

Great site you all have here. Wish I could tell you all about my Benz.....but it's actually my interest in buying my 1st Benz that brought me here. I wanted to make an educated selection instead of throwing money at the first one that came my way.

Unfortunately (I guess) the Benz I saw and came to get info on is apparently the red-headed step child of the Mercedes world....an '85 380

I have driven them and always loved them from afar and finally got the wife to talk seriously about getting one. But I have to admit...after a little reading here I'm now a little gun shy.

That isn't to say I've given up. I plan to continue reading the wealth of information you all have here and make an informed decision when (if) the time comes.

Thanks for having me! Cheers........

Welcome aboard. You should keep your eyes open for a 420 SEL or 560 SEL.. Those are awesome cars as well.

She's a beaut, for sure. Bet it drives like a dream, too.

Was kinda looking for a roadster, though. Something different from the sedans I've driven previously. But I'd consider anything.

In that case I'd suggest a 560 SEC. They're not roadsters but they're just as fun to drive in my opinion. They look modern even though they first came out in the early 80s. Here's a picture of a good one I found online awhile back. Either way I'd check out craigslist, some good cars pop up on there for good prices time to time.
