Just bought my first car, a '78 300d!

Hey everybody,

I just bought my first car at age 17...a '78 300d for $2700, from the original owner's grandson (he gave me the original bill of sale, $14000 brand new!). It's very well maintained and a beautiful car, with 146,000 on the clock, but it needs a few little things to pass inspection (cracked windshield, overheating, reverse lights not working, hole in muffler, along with window motors and other little cosmetic stuff). My brother is a mechanic, so he and I are doing alot of the work ourselves, but if anyone has any tips, especially on the overheating and reverse light issues, please help! We believe the thermostat needs to be replaced, along with the reverse light switch, so we're going to put the car on ramps this weekend and take a look.

All in all, I'm very excited and proud to be a Benz owner, and look forward to maintaining and driving this car, she really is gorgeous

Take a look at the pictures on my profile and tell me if you think I got a good deal!
