Hi everyone,

Thought I'd say hello - been reading the Forums a long time now and learned a lot of valuable info so far.

I'm the new owner of a 1990 W126 300SE in silver. My father bought the car when we had first moved to Toronto, Canada from a country where cars like that tend to get stolen and broken into often; it was a kind of gift to himself after a lifetime of being unable to own such a machine.

20 years later I moved from Toronto to Vancouver. Eventually he thought it was time to pass it onto me, and get himself a new Benz. I flew to Toronto to accept the car and brought it to its new home in the only way befitting such a gift - drove it 5000km across Canada, without a single hitch with one of my best friends (whose father also owned a W126, and who could appreciate the trip!).

Oh, and my dad, missing the old car so much, suddenly came home not with a 'new' Benz but a 1989 420 SEL that he had found on Craigslist.

Anyway, hope to learn a lot about these cars on here and keep both of those until it's time to bring them back to factory condition! Who knows, maybe a million kilometres for each of these cars is in the cards!

I'd love to get together with any W126 experts in the area and learn about the car so I can help it last forever! Let me know if anyone is interested.
