New member, New (old) car!

Hi all,

I just registered my 1987 5 speed 300TE today! I purchased it on ebay in Canada and it arrived last wednesday! 140,000km on it, drives like a dream. I also have a 5 speed 190 2.6 that I've driven for the last 4 years and while I have seen others like it the 300TE in a manual is something I just haven't seen before. I would love to find other owners out there...

Post 1991 SL500

My Name is Larry. I live in Waco Texas. I traded a 2003 Altima with 250,000 miles for a 1991 RED SL500. The dash reads 104,000 when I got the car. The car Has the hard top as well as the convertible top.The Hydraulics in the top leaked. Repaired the latch cylinders. Repaired Bumpers & Hood and Painted them. Spot Painted at this time until I decide what else to do. The car had a major engine miss due to car sitting up for a long time and the gas was bad. Cleaned the injectors and ran seafoam fuel cleaner. Car now runs great. Replaced leaking oring in the hydraulic suspension distribution block. Now i can get the car to raise or the Targa bar to com up. Anyway work in process. The car looks cool with the 20 inch wheels sitting low. i will post pictures. I do need help with the hydraulics any suggestions will be appreciated.
