Post My first Benz

I live in South Africa, though I am hoping to migrate to Scotland with my wife, to join our sons there.

I recently bought a '79 M-B 230, with manual transmission. I can't tell how much distance it has covered, as the odo stopped working at 148,000 km, second time round, for sure. It was a one-owner car, so for its age it is in fine shape. Just a couple of small things to sort out, such as a cracked headlight glass, worn ball joints in the front suspension, stiff window winders. This car is as basic as they come: no air-con, central locking, electric windows or power steering, just a plain, simple car. I am hopeful that it will serve me until we make the move to Scotland.
