Noob from Northern California Mountains

Been a Benz owner since '78 starting with a 300D. Picked up a new SD300 in Sindelfingen in '81 and a 190D in '85 in Southern California, which I still own and am 'restoring', which is what led me to this site. The information here has been quite helpful. The car was the wife's who just passed away. Now I can 'touch' it!

I'll claim the 'old dawg' prize at age 81. I live in the mountains of Northern California. The car is a bit underpowered for the mountain roads, but a dream to drive in the curves. It's not the car to drive to go further up the mountains to ski, but great to go into the city and just to drive. I'll likely lurk here more than post as I'm not the addict like some folks here.
