G'day from down under.

Hey everyone,

Bought a 1982 W126 500 SEL the other day.. you know.. as you do.
It's a bit rough around the edges but has a good solid engine.
(Bit like me really)

So figured I best gen up on them via a forum.

I'm actually a Volvo nut, But I have have always liked Mercs since my Dad came home in a 190E AMG when I was a teenager and let me put my foot down in it. Never forgot that "chest being crushed" feeling you get from super quick get up and go...

You'll see me around asking for advice on my 500 SEL I'm sure.. Never owned one, but have to say the ride is stunning.. It's like someone is ahead of you filling in all the pot holes with foam!

See you around the traps. Thanks.
