What did I get my self into?

Hello gentlemen

I recently became the proud owner of a 1972 280SE and I don't know a damn thing about it.

The car runs, but not very well. It idles alright but when you get on the gas it feels like it wants to stall. The previous owner had some guy come and look at it and he started turning some knob in the engine bay, up front on the passengers side, and the P/O said he made it worse. Anyways, I cant wait to really dig into this thing and get her running smoothly again!

Thanks boss. It seems like a lot of people introduce themselves but never come back. I'm here for the long haul...
