Newbie in my first Benz

Hi all! I'm Larry and I have just acquired a 1982 Mercedes 380SL. It is my first Benz ever and I'm kinda stoked about it. I always admired the 107 cars when I was a kid, and grew up with them being the ultimate 'status stymbol' on TV shows like Dallas, Hart to Hart, Knight Rider, etc. Overall it is in pretty good shape. Very Little rust, tired but presentable paint, likewise worn but presentable interior. It has a few glitches I need to address, such as a high idle, whining blower motor, that kinda thing, but overall a decent example. I've always restored and driven chevy muscle cars and am discovering that this is an entirely different animal, but I'm looking forward to the learning curve. Keep ya posted on the progress! And thanks in advance for answering the 'dumb' questions!

Welcome to Benzworld!! Head over to the 107 fourm and share that magic, mystery and misery that comprises 107 ownership.
