Hello guys! I am in the process of purchasing my first Benz and am pretty excited! It will needs lots of attention but I intend to keep the car until the end.
I have always owned classic VWs so have been in love with German engineering for at least the last 3 decades. My husband is an engine builder for aircooled Volkswagen Type 4 and Porsche high performance engines and has worked for a couple of privately owned Mercedes repair shops in the past. I am the parts store manager for the only online Type 4 engine parts retailer on the web and also for Porsche Boxster/911 so I will have the luxury of getting a lot of my Benz parts at wholesale pricing.
The car I'm getting is a 1982 300SD with 257K miles. It has a super solid platform, the interior will only need minor repairs and the engine, of course, will require the most attention but not an over-whelming amount. The drive train has no issues.
I hope to learn a lot of tips and tricks from the regular board members and would like to extend my thanks to all that made this forum happen and all they do to keep it running.
