Hello All

So I finally became owner of 1983 Turbo Diesel last Friday. This happened to be my first ever car. The decision to buy was impulsive. Background to story, I have been renting cars for some time and started commuting to another job which required traveling in car. So renting every week became feasible. My supervisor at new place enlightened me that Old Mercedes-Benz are built like tanks, especially one before 1985. he got his 1985 MB SD last week from California and I decided, I need to get one too. Tried looking on ebay and luckily found someone who was near to my place. Unfortunately, due to lack of confidence couldn't bid on time and auction ended. I tried to take my chance and called and the person informed, it was still available, I sent my friend to check on the car( who is vehicle savvy) on tuesday, He felt confident and inspired confidence . He did inform me that car may need some work here and there but ran well. So I called and finalized the deal and drove from Lincoln to Olathe on Friday and bought it. I drove back to Lincoln and so far felt confident in the vehicle.

I like to take care of my things and hopefully can take care of my car. It has to sit in open parking so can't do much about weather elements. I have not messed around with vehicles at all. So not sure at this moment , if I will be able to get going immediately with small things here and there people suggest to do on own. Hopefully, will get guidance and get pointed in right direction when needing help.

Thanks,

Dracs
