Greetings from Sweden

Hi Everyone,

I thought it is about time to introduce myself. I’ve been browsing the excellent information on the forums for a while now, but

My wife and I have several MBs. I have an E270 CDI and my wife has a ’72 350SL 4speed which I am restoring for her. Living in southern Sweden the salt and the climate takes its toll on cars, the rust attacking anything parked outside.

The latest addition this summer was a 1985 500SEL which is way past its best-by date. It came to me from a friend whose wife was urging him to get rid of the rusting hulk parked out front. Not quite sure why I picked it up – like I needed another project car...

I figured I would part the SEL out, but my 10 year old daughter decided she wanted to fix it up to use as her first car. So now it’s our father-daughter project. We'll see. It's 8 years until she gets her license.

The 500SEL arriving home behind the E-Class:
