Hi guys and girls, I'm a newbie to this forum, and Mercedes ownership,.......by default really...
I had a 1957 Desoto Sportsman Hardtop for sale on Trade Me.. (NZ's version of Ebay) and took a 1993 SL 320 Roadster as a swap........my wife and I both love it and are going to keep it...so here I am.
I'm a hotrodder at heart but I love engineering and innovation, and am not at all biased brand wise. I have a healthy respect for European engineering, and have owned a few Italian cars..
.....but really, they have awesome character too.
Fiat 131R almost new......and a 1968 1750 GTV Alpha....amongst them.
Of course for a 20 yr old car, the Merc has some faults and I hope to find the answers here as this seems to be the most organised and well attended site I can find.
Treat me gently as I'm new to the Teutonic way of doing things
but I'm sure it is as valid as any other.
