Newbie with issues

I recently joined BenzWorld. I have a 1993 500 SEL, am the third owner and it looks like I now have a "project" car. I live in northern California in the foothills. My immediate issue is:
1. Car starts and runs normally.
2. After it is warmed up and I have driven for about 10-20 minutes it won't restart or it may restart with backfiring but won't idle.
3. Let the car sit overnight and it will start right up, run smoothly and then goes back to 2 above.

Any ideas on where to start tracking down the problem will be appreciated.
