This forum looks great!
I new here and would like to be in touch with fellow Mercedes Owners.
I used to have a "72 250 Sedan--loved it-- Which I sold because I couldn't haul Music Equipment in it. So I bought a Ford Van.
I recently bought a '85 380 SE. I just couldn't stop myself! 3.8 Aluminum V-8 with a Four Speed Automatic Trans. I bought from the original owners. 149,000 with,(they say, no papers....), a new Engine put in in 1999--they said this cost them $8000. I must say the Oil looks clean and like honey!
For such a small Engine, it sure is fast. and it handles well too. Like on rails, but without the fuss.
I suppose I should try to trade the Van and this Car for a MB Station Wagon...but I AM having fun with this Car!
I have some lower profile tires on this, and a New Kenwood Stereo CD player.
