Introducing myself. 300Dt and 380SL
Hello, to introduce myself (member since 2006 but not active) I live in Texas USA, and now have two MBs. I found an 82 300Dt lying on the side of the road and took pity on it. After a significant investment and many bad words, it has become my daily driver and now has 236,000 miles. We are relatively happy together. But my wife wanted a newer car, so I found an 83 380SL to invest the remainder of my retirement funds in.
I think it is in better condition than the 300Dt, but parts are much harder to find. My local junkyard has about 2 dozen Mercedes, and none are the R107 body style.
Oh well, if it was easy anybody could do it.
