Hello (finally)

A much belated introduction. I picked up my car, a 1984 300 SD back in October and promptly signed up here on the forum. I've been lurking around, finding out as much about my car as I can.

I was waiting to post my introduction for when I had a chance to take some pics. Between the car being dirty (pollen) or in the shop (way too much) it's been long overdue. But today was a beautiful day here in the Carolinas, and so spent some time cleaning away the pollen, bugs, and general dirt.

So here we are, me and Fritzie, aka The Diesel Demon. He's needed quite a bit more mechanically than I had originally thought, but we're almost there (I think). At least most of the big stuff should be done now.

Welcome to Benzworld, car looks great.

Thanks, I'm so glad to have found you. He's very shiny, but has lots of chips, some flaking, and a couple of rusty places, so there's a paint job in the future. But transmission work first.

I read a thread on here, someone saying how their 126 is a money pit. Although I can relate, as repairs have really added up, every time I get in it, I can't help but smile. I drove 82's and 83's in a previous life, and while you can definitely tell this is almost 30 years old, it still drives and rides like a Benz.

Maybe some day I'll step up to a fancy new one like you guys have, but for now, I'm happy with what I've got.
