Cool Hello everybody ...

Hi everybody , im new to the forum, Mercedes cars have always been my passion, i grew up in Comunist Cuba where i used to see dictator Fidel Castro always mooving around Havana city on his motorcade of W126 560sel armored Mercedes ...so since i was a kid i associated the image of these cars with absolute power, respect and elegance. A lot of world figures used these cars back in the 80's some famous and some infamous..im sure you all know ...i believe W126 cars are timeless machines of incredible beauty and elegance, although for some reason here in america they are not so popular anymore.
I always told myself y would have a car like that some day ....and sure enogh years later i came to the US and i got myself one in very good condition...although mine is a first generation grey market 500sel ..and its not armored !!!...to bad ...

I had friends telling me that i was carzy by getting into an older car like this etc etc ...but i bought it anyways.

Im very handy and have worked on cars for a long time ....i also have a lot of tools...i have also become very aquainted with the mechanics of this particualr model and im eager to continue to learn ...i hope to be able to help and be helped through this web site and share my passion for this cars.

I leave in Phoenix AZ and in the summer time it gets extremelly hot here ....up to 120 F ....i have been told these cars hate the heat ....specially euro models like mine ...so its has been a chalenge to keep it running cool in here when i use the ac in traffic.

Anyways ...i will post a couple of pics of the car

Be well
