Post New owner of a 1985 300CD Turbo Diesel - Thrilled...

Just bought a 1985 300CD Turbo Diesel today. 263,000 miles. Red with Black interior. The engine is perfect. No leaks, no smoke and runs like a top. Exterior is great aside a couple small spots of rust but I'm excited for the project. Will also repair some interior blemishes but otherwise a great purchase.
Also made a new longtime friend in a Mercedes mechanic today who checked it out. He spent over 2.5 hrs with me and walked over every inch of the car. Ted at Friedel's in Renton, WA.
I have several friends who own this car and am happy to now be in the clan.

Look forward to getting to know you all here.
