My name is Al E. and I live in Greenwich Ct. I own a 1979 MB 450 SLC that has a undetermined amount of miles on it. A friend of mine sold it to me for 500.00 bucks two years ago and I almost went broke making it run.. Nun-the-less I enjoyed every minute bringing it back to life and I'm amazed as to how durable and forgiving this amazing mechanical device is. I simply love this car.

I have been reading up on some of the basic requirements for being a member here and intend to do my very best to comply and help where I can. I am not a rocket scientist by trade; however, people swear that I am. I take a practical approach to mechanical devices and tent to know how to use tools for the most part. I work on my own cars as a result of my Grandmothers words of wisdom “If you want something done right, do it your self “
This I truly believe ……..
I just received a 1991 MB 560 SEC with 110.00 miles from my boss. The car belonged to his dad that recently departed. I can say for this gentleman that as a real engineer he did know how to baby this vehicle. I am so lucky to have known him.

Unfortunately the vehicle sat outside for three years or so and would like some information on what I should look for before putting it on the road. I did post some pictures earlier for all to see.
