Hi, I'm in Australia, and have just bought my first Benz - a 1981 300D. It's a really sweet car and driving it is very relaxing. Like me, it will probably get a little tired after the 500,000 km mark - just around the corner. I enjoy the vegie garden, mucking around with biodiesel, and am passionate about tinkering with pre-80s motorbikes, and am presently working on a diesel conversion for a Dnepr outfit. It may even get finished before I retire and the Young One goes to Uni.
