Newby to Benz world but not to Mercedes Benz

Recently retired and ready to start reburbishing my 1972 250C. My first exposure to MB was to my folks 1961 220S which we picked up in Stutgart and remained in the family for the next 30 years. After 25 yrs dad sold the 220 to me and I drove and cared for it as a third car for 2 yrs and then my niece needed it to drive to college. Then dad called as said a guy wanted to restore it so it left the family still purring like a kitten. 20 odd years ago I purchased a very nice silver 250C which we drove for years, but decided to save it for a toy. It has been clean and dry since. Now time and money allows to bring it back to proper condition for sunny day cruising, including the muscle car/hot rod shows,(which I love and appreciate, but a little class is fun to show too). So you may see my inquires as to where find parts resources and DYI questions.
The End
