Busy, Benz-y week

Hi, All!

I am not exactly new here. I have had a 300SD for about 3 years. I converted it to run on WVO (for all you purists, I apologize ) and had a great time doing it. Recently, though, the restaurant where I got my oil closed and I have been running on dino diesel, which can get expensive. So I decided to trade up, or at least over, for something new and sporty.

I found a guy on craigslist who was interested in trading his 1993 190E 8v for my diesel. Done. Now I have to figure out a whole new Benz! Its a nice car, but I am working through some issues. I'll post in the W201 section.

It seems that when you have one Benz, especially an older one, people think you need another, so this week, a friend of a friend was moving and had to get a non-op car out of the yard. You guessed it, a Benz. I might not have gone for it, but it was a cute little 1978 300CD, white with palomino interior. You don't see many of those, so I am a sucker. I will try to get it running soon.

Anyway, that's me. Glad to be back, and I appreciate all your help.

Ken in Texas.
