Hello! from South Africa

Hello everyone!

I am very happy to have found this forum. I recently bought my first Benz (I am actually a Jaguar fan) and collected it this afternoon. I have a 1990 W126 500SE and what a beautiful automobile this is! One cannot simply call it a car, because it doesn't begin to describe it! I must add though that my newest addition to the family is in desperate need of some tender loving care, as her previous owner had her as a runabout - what a waste of a vehicle. Needless to say, there are a multitude of small things which need attention. First on the list is to get her running smoothly again as she is running on what sounds like 5 or 6 cylinders. Not pretty... Once this has been done I need to prepare her for a roadworthy certificate. This poses to be a challenge for me as both the right-hand side windows do not work. A plus is that the cruise control and the sunroof work, which from what I have read seems to be a rarity. I would greatly appreciate all the help I can get to get this beauty back to her former glory.
