Imagine that another new guy.

Hi y'all another new guy.

First Merc, gotta admit I'm a Porsche/BMW/VW guy.

Picked up an import 1972 450sl from the lady across the street, it's been sitting for at least ten years as I've never seen it move since we moved here.

Here's a pic taken just before I loaded it on the trailer to take to my shop.

Interior is in pretty poor shape and the dash pad and center console both have just about returned to their basic elements, what do you want for 400$. The cloth seats and carpet are still in very nice shape.

Been working on getting it running for the last couple of days but not quite there yet ( I'll keep searching this great forum and resource ) but alas I may have to post up a question or two because I'm not that familiar with D-jet.

I'd consider myself an advanced hobbyist when it comes to cars, I can pretty much do anything but the quality and speed may or may not ( depending on the task ) be up to pro standards.

Couple pics of my ( all ) self done 2002 for example, started with a $500 pile.

Thanks for looking, back to the 107 area for more research.
