Another Newbie- "new" '79 240D

Hey All. My name is Greg and I'm 23 years old. I'm young and, quite frankly, pretty broke. I was looking for a new car that would get me reasonably decent gas mileage and I came across this 1979 240D. I ended up buying it for $600 and I've been driving it everyday. I love the thing. Shes not much of a looker but at 65 she floats like a Cadillac.

anyway, I'm going to need to do some work to her to keep her on the road here shortly and I thought I'd reach out to this community for some help along the way. Shes pretty leaky but hanging in there for sure. Just thought I'd introduce myself here first. I also attached a pic of me and my beauty. Thanks

Welcome to the fold! I just bought an older one myself on Friday. I owned a 220D when I was 18 and loved that car. You can see my new ride on the welcome post today "Back in a Benz"
