Finally, an MB diesel owner!

Greetings from Central New York State!

I recently purchased, with the help of my other half, a beautiful 1978 300D naturally aspirated. I basically purchased the car because I wanted something that was going to last (with proper maintenance, of course) and I found no better deal than an old MB diesel. That, and having driven a few owned by the other half, I sort of fell in love with the 300D's. When I saw this one in such a 70's color, it was lust at first sight!

I don't have much in the way of mechanical knowledge to contribute, but perhaps I can help out in other ways. I am an active ham radio geek as well as a 911 dispatcher, so I know my way around a lot of electronics. I can't wait to get started!

73 / Best Wishes
