280 SEL Euro new owner

Hi from Chicago, I am now the proud owner of a 1984 280 SEL Euro Benz.

It is low mileage, 82,000 original miles, in fair condition and in good running shape.

I look forward to saving some gas instead of driving me Vette around or my truck and cruising in Mercendes Benz style and comfort.

I look forward to being part of the community and learning more about my new toy

I have some autocross and time trial and road racing experience having been a SCCA and Nasa member for numerous years and living in So Cal for 5 years I got the bug to go on track.

Bought a C6 Corvette put some aero and handling goodies on it and won the 2009 Corvette Challenge Season points in 2009. Blew my motor in 2010 and moved in 2011 so here I am stuck in the snow.

My Benz is a euro so it is a little complicated I think to get parts and service done to the car so I will likely have some questions.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me.

Bye for now.
