Hello from Vancouver, BC

Hey All,

Just picked up my third Mercedes, a brand-old-new 1986 190D 2.5!

She's sharp looking, red, good dent in the right front fender, and has all the quirks, scars, and rattles of a 25 year old diesel, but I love her dearly.

This, in spite of the fact that on day two she has already decided to lock me out. I suspect a busted ignition lock cylinder. We'll see.

It's a little different than the trusty old 240Ds to drive, but a good change, I think.

Hoping to find a few more 190D enthusiasts, and maybe learn a thing or two so I can pass the help along one day.

Anyhow, glad to be here!

Wish me luck, I'm hopefully in for a long relationship with this one.
