Hi Everyone,
I just join the forum and would like to tell you something about myself. I live in Michigan Upper Peninsula near Lake Superior. Our average snowfall is about 250 inches a year. I have been driving diesels for years but purchase my first Mercedes diesel about 6 years ago and I loved it. It was a 1987 300D with about 235,000 miles. The car had a conversion kit to run veggie and after a year I ended up improving the system so it would run great on veggie. I had purchase a few more cars during the last 5 years, a 1986 190D, a 1985 CD and a 79 SD. I was fortunate to find another 87 300D with only 121,000 miles on it. Low miles but lots of work to restore now its my daily driver. I work for a non profit working with low income elderly people who are alone,and isolated. Some can't believe that I am driving an old Mercedes diesel with back wheel drive during the winter.
