New 124 owner

Although I have been a member of the forums for almost a year, I have never introduced myself. In august of last year, I purchased my '88 300E from a neighbor for $250. The car ran and for the most part is mechanically sound. When I had purchased it, the bumper was half broken off with the bumper/radiator support bent and pushing the radiator into the fan. Also had both headlights broken out but all metal, fenders, etc. are straight!

As I have driven it over the last year or so (still with broken bumper and support(pulled out so radiator is away from fan)) I keep finding stupid problems. The blower motor resistor (imagine that) went out, the cruise control amplifier as well and now the auto antenna. Just recently, I ordered a new bumper and support and now I'm getting ready to install. All in All, it's a great car, just not the most beautiful right now lol
