Hello from OZ

I am from Australia.
I have a small collection of 3 fab cars a 1972 3.5 What a great car. A 1980 450sel Big and beautiful, 1980 300d can you believe the economy?

Sorry but I'm not into the new stuff.
I do most of the mechanical work needed have gotten a few clues over the years from this site. Thought it time I joined.

I recently replaced the timing chain in the 450 just done 200,000 ks. Hadn't done one before took me 3 days. Had to make a tool to undo the internal covers the rest was a piece of cake. Even found a quicker way to replace the chain.

So Cheers from down under.

Fabulous cars indeed mate..

I presume they are a W108 280SEL 3.5, a W116 450SE/L and a W123 300D..? The 3.5 and the 4.5 are as you say, fantabulous cars and I love 'em to bits when I was a young lad and till today they're quite a few here in Malaysia.

Yup, nuthing looks as majestic as the old timers...
