Hello, from Ajax, ON Canada
I folks, while I don't current own a Benzo of my own, I hope to in short order. We had a family friend that received a 300TD as a gift from his children when he retired that he restored over the years so I was around to see a lot of that process as my father is a mechanic (also now retired). Then, our family owned an old 200 series that had a nasty flooding/stalling problem that eventually caused us to give up the car. Even though it was old, needed bodywork, had the crusty leather and peeling chrome, it was still a Benz and it immediately put the driver into another level from those around him/her.
I am currently looking at either a 300E series late 90s/early 2K model or, and I really like this one, a 2001 500S with all the toys. It may not be practical with the price of gas and all but it is on my bucket list and I deserve it!
I hope to find a lot of good information in this forum and hopefully I can contribute some meaningful posts myself. Take care.
