Hello BenzWorld

Greetings members -

I joined yesterday and apparently jumped the gun with a question in the introduction forum. Sorry!

My home is Los Angeles, CA. I have been working on Saabs, as an out-of-control hobby, since 1980. I have owned 17 900s (pre '94) since my first 1979 EMS. My wife has always loved the MB 107 body and we found a prime example in 2006. Thought all was well with the car . . . but it turned into a bit of a Saab story. We've been driving it, but it's just not right.

I do 90% of my maintenance and repair work at home. I will be interested to find the best sources of repair information from this site. I hope to contribute as I learn things that may help others.

The Mercedes I own is a 1985 380SL. Cosmetically the car is 95%. The original soft top did not appear to have ever been up before I bought the car. It ran its first 165K in the SF Bay area. I will post my engine problems in the 107 forum.

Thank you for any help y'all can provide.
