Hello everybody...

My name is Tim and I live in St. Peters, MO just a few minutes west of St. Louis, MO. I am at the retirement age after having worked for many years with IBM as an IT engineer and then for the last 10 years in aviation as an inspector for a firm in St. Louis that maintains corporate jet. Flying is/was my passion since childhood. Never thought it would be the way to put food on the table until 2000 when I got RIF'ed from IBM and couldn't find work. Called a few aviation friends and well that was how I got to where I am at now.

For cars I have had MGs, Jaguars (X2), and now Volks Wagons (X2), and a 1961 F100 Uni-body truck which is my trusty rusty rat rod. Fun to have something that the only tool you need to make a repair is a hammer.

Well, I am looking at buying a 1984 300SL and posted a message in the general section of the forum regarding what I might need to know before buying it.

Thanks, Tim
