New guy here

Hello all, I live in Baltimore MD and I am planning to take the plunge into 80s MB diesel ownership. I am currently looking at a W116 (80) sedan, a W126 (82) sedan, and a W123 (81) wagon. I drive a VW diesel but I have loved the look of the 80s MB diesels, especially the wagons since I was a child.

I appreciate any advice and suggestions, preparations for owning one of the classic beauties...especially from any other enthusiasts in the Maryland area.

Thanks!

Welcome jh! As you have probably found by now, there are separate forums for each vehicle type that you listed. There is a lot of experience out there, so feel free to ask for answers or, to save time, use the search feature.

I keep wishing that I had my 1977 240D back. I sold it when I ran out of garage space after I bought the 560SL.
