I'd like to introduce myself to the forum. I've been interested in Mercedes since I was a boy. My fathers' first Mercedes was a 1968 Arabian grey 250S. One look at the wood trim and the dual carbs and I was hooked. He subsequently bought a 1974 450SE, a 1988 300TE, and a 1990 300se ,which he kept for 18 years! His latest purchase has been a 2006 R-500. I've spent a long time lusting after these cars but was never in the position to buy one of my own until this year. The 1990 300SE which my father sold 2 years ago came up for sale again and I was able to bring it back to our family.
Despite being 21 years old it only has 95,000 miles on the odo and is in very good shape. I have followed items on this forum since finding it and it has already been very helpful.
Here's to many more years of association with this magnificent auto company.I will be following soon with a photo of my 300SE.
