Hi there everyone!
Glad to join this forum.
I have been a fan of the three pointed star cars ever since I was eight years old :-). I can still remember the day my dad took me to a used car dealership where all kinds of cars were parked waiting for someone to buy them. Until then, all cars were pretty much the same to me. He took me to the front where this "yellowish" 190E was parked and said: "This is the best car in the world". I told him that it pretty much looked the same to me; then he opened the door and showed me all the details, the nicely done cloth seats (it was a euro), the clean lines on the dash, the solid way the door closed shut, the beautiful Becker radio and most of all, the quiet yet quick (to my standards) ride. The image of that hood star, flying proud in front of us made me fall in love immediately ... and 25 years later, well here I am.
I should have joined this forum long time ago but kept putting it out until someone offered me (two days ago) a silver, 1979 450slc 5.0 for sale. I know they are rare cars but I had to do some research and found a lot of stuff on this site. I have not made up my mind yet about the car, mainly because I have too many already and because his asking price is just over $13K. the car is in great condition with only 60K miles on it. I am still debating it.
Anyways guys ... GLAD TO BE HERE!
