Talking About time for an intro

Hi everyone,

I've been a member for what seems like only a little while but its been since August of '11. Guess you could say I've just been lurking since then. So its high time for an intro.

This site is one of the best things I've come across for Mercedes enthusiasts. It's been so helpful. I've learned quite a bit since August.

I've owned a '90 300E for about 12 years now and loved it until I stopped driving a few years back after it wouldn't pass smog! However I still needed a utilitarian type car for my 2 dogs and decided to get a '92 300TE black/grey tex back in July. It needed quite a few things and that's when I found this site.

Since then I've done quite a few things to it. Mostly cosmetic but did replace the SLS accumulators (what a difference in the ride!!!!!) Next is the LCA bushings, sway bar bushings, ball joints and struts.

I've been a shade tree mechanic since my first car a '65 Mustang Fastback 289 4spd back in 1985. And since then I've had pretty much 4x4's and muscle cars as well as the intermitent VW Fox or Sirocco when gas $ would bothered me.

Cheers!

PS - I'm getting a wild hair for turbocharging my TE

jks - Every time I think about that car! The good thing was that the guy that bought it from me did a complete frame off so to speak and made a beautiful GT350 clone then gave it to his daughter as a wedding gift.

Cheers
