New 300E Owner - Kentucky
Hi, I recently bought a 1989 300E - I'm the 4th owner (it has about 160K miles). The first owner kept the car for 8 years and was meticulous with maintenance and care, the second was pretty good with maintenance and upkeep, the 3rd owner did pretty much no maintenance and managed to wreck the passenger side front fender and door, the 4th owner was a young girl that panicked over a transmission line leak after having the car only 6 weeks.
I have the service records from the first two owners, too bad the third wasn't nearly as careful!
However, I do have my work cut out for me. In spite of all this it still runs good, and very strong. I look forward to doing a bunch of work on it an getting it back in pristine condition - and I'll be on here seeking advice!
