Another new guy

Hello, I have been working on a 1975 450 SLC for a while now. I was a Mercedes mechanic several years ago and sence having that job I have had a special liking for the cars. I have always been into racing of all kinds (I particularly like rally) unfortunately a short stint with a 190E 2.3-16V is the only MB racing I have done in the past, I hope to change that with this car.

I've never been one for overly sharing my plans on the internet, but I will probably put some stuff out there as I get it done. I'm hoping to have the car mostly done by early November 2011. Some of you might get a kick out of the car being built in a barn. A real, honest to god, red barn with white trim right out of the 1920's.

I've read quite a few posts around and many of you guys seem to be into keeping the car origional. Sorry in advance, but the car will be pretty far from a stock '75 450 SLC when it is done. That said, I am a MB fan so much of it will probably be MB parts.

Thanks for reading.

The picture is what my car looked like when I bought it... looks a lot different now. heh
