Thumbs up My FIRST EVER Mercedes-Benz (300E)

From sunny Palm Springs, CA...
Greetings all!

Last Tuesday I latched onto my first ever Benz... an 86 300E, 128k mi, hardly perfect, but as I only paid $1800 I will not complain (much!) about it.

Long-story-short, my previous ride, a 97 Chrysler Sebring which I adored in spite of its many faults, lost 3rd/4th gear in the spring, and I ended up putting nearly 4k miles on it that way. I needed something that could get me to work AND was highway-capable... and cheap! I was long aware of MB's tendency for long life and knew that if I could find one 'inexpensively enough' that was what I wanted...

She has few mechanical issues, some minor physical issues (that being minor body damage in the right-rear) and of course, some cosmetic issues from being neglected.

Trust me, its ALOT prettier than the poor, NEWER Sebring!
I will miss it but looking forward to fixing, primping and eventual PIMPING of my new baby!

I went thru hell getting over there myself, but the trouble got me a meager discount.

Had another possiblity but Im sure I'll be happy with this one. After $240 in tune-up parts it runs quite well.
