New to the Benz lifestyle

Hey everyone. Just bought my first MB, and I had to find a forum. This one seems first class after browsing it for a while.

Anyways, a bit about my car. Its a 1990 300e. Clean as can be, but time has taken a toll on the mechanics of the car. Its a project for sure. I drove it home, but it has a blown head gasket, and I'm pretty sure the timing chain is worn to an inch of its life. Other than those large problems, the only other flaw I've found is the heat and AC blow out of every vent they can.

I'll be sure to post pics soon and hope to get some feedback and possible tech advice in the future.

One thing about me, I have been a member of another forum once, I had a 2005 Scion XB, placed in a few shows, even travelled with a club for shows like Hot Import Nights and NOPI. Those days are behind me. I'm not going to put a huge fart cannon exhaust, or underglow, or Enkei wheels on the Benz. I couldn't disgrace such an amazing car like that.
