My old merc

Hi, I live in county durham and am busy resurecting my 250D after beng laid up for 2 years, the car that is, not me. My wife wanted a touring caravan, and the old lady is not capable, so we bought this daft E300 td. had it 2 years and it was always a heavy beast, c/w 20 siezed wheel nuts which were a bitch to drill out. but its gone now, so I'm plodding away with a brake refurb for a new mot. Its done a grand 278000 mies, and is completely original. apart from a new auto box, wishbones, and an exhaust. Started first time after 18 months, so I am very pleased with the progress, and look forward to informing you all of the next exciting installment.
