Newbie from The Netherlands

Hi folks!

I am Sjak, 37 years old, living in Holland.

Since this is a MB-board, I will tell you about my relation with MB.

As a kid, I liked the allure of mainly the classic S-class cars, and later on I decided that I would own one. Years later, my driving lesson car was a 220 CDI; I specifically chose the driving school for the car.

After I got my driving licencs, my first car was a 74 Cutlass Salon, and after that, I got involved into classic Mopars, especially the big-block powered luxosaur. I owned a 67 Newport Custom Coupe, a 73 Imperial LeBaron 4dr, 73 Imperial LeBaron 2dr, and a 71 Sport Fury.

Last year I finally bought my first Benz, a 1985 W123 300TD to do a big trip through eastern Europe. Went through the Carpathian, to the Black Sea, and to some other very spectacular locations. But I had a sort of love/hate thing with that car. It was nice in a way, but extremely slow and noisy. In a way, I wasnt too bothered when the engine struck just 200km from home.

Today, I made a deposit on a 1966 W108 250S. Compared to the Mopars I owned, it is an extremely basic, bare bone car, but it has a different kind of charm. Its in need of some work, but lets say the purchase price was according to the condition of the car
