New member from South Africa

Hi everybody , I am a Mercedes Benz fan ,I live in South Africa & I currently drive 2004 W203 C240 & am currently buying a 1983 W126 280SE (I am a sucker for older Mercs) . My first Benz was a 1984 W123 230E , I have also owned two W202's & a W203 C230 Coupe. I love doing as much work as possible myself on my cars , partly to save money but also because I like to become familiar with my vehicles. I have consulted this sight more times than I can remember as a guest & thought now is as good a time as any to become a member. Well that's about it for now , I look forward to a constructive time on this forum.

Hazit boet. I am Also a new member from S.A. Had a few W203's myself, but also love the late 70's and early 80's models as they were built rock solid and closing those car doors was like shutting a bank vault. I would love to get hold of a 560 SEC when I have some spare cash, but they are fairly rare and hard to get hold of. The nice thing about restoring Merc's in S.A. is the availability of spares just about anywhere as these cars are so popular here and have been so for a long time. I am currently hunting for a good 2004 E55 AMG to modify and keep as a daily driver as I am still young and stupid. Have fun.

Thanks guys

Thanks guys for the welcome , the W126 280SE I thought was is such good condition turned out to be be not so good on closer inspection , I will let the guy brew a while & make him a much lower offer at month end when I get home to SA. Failing that I see a very nice looking 1984 500 SEC for sale near to where I live for not very much money (less than 60k) , I might try and bargain the guy down a few thousand if I see it's worthwhile. In the mean time I guess I will have to enjoy my C240 LOL until I can find something interesting & old (solid)
