Smile Mercedes diesel fan!

Hi - my name is Grant. I live in British Columbia (Canada).

I've been a fan of the MB diesels ever since my first one - a 1975 300D. Put lots of miles on her and she never let me down - except that the body eventually rusted pretty badly!

I 'moved up' to a 1980 300D - originally from California. It's also been a great car - apart from general maintenance items, it has cost me very little to run over the past 12 years.

The 300 D is now for sale because I recently 'moved up' again to a 1986 300 SDL. It has 354000 km on it, but it runs like its brand new! What a beauty! It was a one family car - purchased new in 1986 and purchased by the son when the original buyer passed on. All service- from new - has been done at Mercedes dealerships.

It does have a couple of fairly minor issues which I will seek help from in the "126 body style" forum.

Cheers!

The current Merc diesels are orders of magnitude better than the 1980s lumps and the cars are now rocketships while returning better fuel economy.
