New owner to a 1979 280CE

Hi everyone!

I just became the new owner of a beautiful 1979 280CE. Baby blue with 79K original miles. Very excited to have the car and be part of the club!

Unfortunately, despite thinking the car was nearly mint, I've had to put in a new alternator, radiator cap/thermostat, and dashboard circuit.

I got the car for $3,500, which given the condition I think was a steal, but I'm interested to hear what people think!
