G'day from Newbie

G'day all and thanks for allowing me to join in with all that happens in here - I've been loitering for a while and this morning I finally got around to registering.

I'm approaching 60 and I'm sort of semi-retired, or at least I'm trying to be. It's amazing these days how much money you need to meet even very base and basic standing expenses before you spend any on yourself and a fairly expensive hobby - classic vehicle restoration.

I've owned a metallic silver (black velour interior) w126 300SE (import) for years, about 12 years I think, and it has just 80,000k's on the clock. It's in very good nick save for a few minor things like a good tune up, new tyres etc., which comes about as a result of being garaged and not driven for the past 2 - 3 years. It's now time to really dress it up and hopefully enjoy some peaceful some country roads and a bit of showing it off. I do believe nothing looks smarter on the road than a carefully detailed Merc with a few years under it's belt.

I live in Brisbane and have done since 1973 after I migrated from NSW. The best move I ever made. I love Qld and equally Brisbane. I look forward now to really enjoying both at my own leisure.

Again, thanks for allowing me to join and participate with you. I appreciate the privilege.

Best regards,
Roo33 (Barry)
