New member with my first benz!


I'm Oats(or Travis), and I'm a 22-year old student. I just finished my Associate's for Culinary Arts, now I'm going back to school for a Bachelor's in Food Science.

My car(that I'm picking up tomorrow, hopefully) is a 1981 240D sedan. It's a 4-speed with 180k miles. I'm paying $2300 for it, which I think is a fair price. It runs really well, just had some engine maintenance and exhaust work done. There are a couple things that don't work, and there's some considerable rust, but I think I'm going to have fun getting it into great shape.

I'll post some more pics once I get it in the driveway, but for now this is the only one I have.

I've never owned one of these cars before, but I've wanted one for a while now due to their awesome build quality and indestructible engine.
