A good friend's gem

Greetings fellow benz heads!

It is a tragedy how I got my new gem, a close friend of mine died in a home explosion after years of police harassment and city political abuse. He left me his prized gem, one that he got when he was a used car salesman. Tomorrow I am going to pick up my new (to me) 1986 190E, 2.3 16v with the fancy suspension. It is my best understanding that it needs (at the very least) a good tune-up, fuel filter, upholstery, and paint. I would not be surprised if it needed more, like brakes, a rebuild, clutch, A/C, struts, etc etc and etc.

It is my intention to rebuild this car back to it's original glory and to learn as much about this as possible. I am very new to the Mercedes world, other than taking out 5 cyl diesels and putting them into cars that they didn't come from. When I get pictures I'll post em.
