Howdy BenzWorld!

Greetings fellow Mercedes lovers,

Just thought I'd introduce myself; my name's Will and this is my '85 300D Turbo is my first car. My father's first car was a 1960's W111 which in its later life was lovingly referred to as the 'deathmobile'. He then bought an '87 560 SEL and that's when I fell in love with the marque.

I bought my car sight unseen from a gentleman down in Dallas (I live in DC) because of the extraordinary service history - every piece of paperwork from tire rotations to the original shipping manifest. Mechanically she couldn't be any better but needs some work, namely a new coat of paint. I'm hoping to over the course of the next year or so get her resprayed and fitted with euro headlamps if I can find them.

Well that's that. I'm looking forward to chatting with you all!
