Winters in Mexico!

Hello all, My wife and I spend the winters in San Carlos Sonora, Mexico.
We recently bought a 25 year old Mercedes, I have known the solo owner, and watch the car its whole life. Never knowing I would have a chance to own it. It spent its life in garaged and in a very dry climate. Has 180,000 miles. Has been to the dealer it's entire life. It has anything it needed done.
We got it and drove 2,000 mile south to out Mexico winter home. It drives like a dream! Very happy to have joined, and look forward to keeping up this fine car.
Our previous MB was a 1983 300SD. We had it for 10 years, 200,000 miles. Sold it to a high school kid who is still driving it.....:-)Winters in Mexico!-img_6659.jpgWinters in Mexico!-img_6622.jpg

For a 25 year old car this is staggering, the interior looks like new, welcome to Benzworld.
