Unhappy Hello I'm suresh- 1972 280 se 4.5

I'm from katy ,texas, I have a 1972 280 SE 4.5 that I have just got the bug again for using it as a daily driver after a good chunk of time dormant in the garage. I've had it since 2003, and in 2005 got a bunch of work done on it. Since around 2006 I haven't run it as much as I should and I am hoping that I can get it back to running condition. I feel terrible about not using it as much as I should and hope that I can get it back to where it was. There was a lot going on and unfortunately, I neglected the car. We'll see..

For a while between 2003- 2005 it was a daily warrior , I even drove it from Valdosta, Georgia to Houston. It ran like a champ.

It has always been solace for me. There is something blissful about seeing the mercedes symbol on the steering wheel, about the artistic engineering that went into the car. I hope to get it running again.
