I should start by saying that I have known my wife since she was 14 and I can honestly say that all she has ever wanted was a 280se Cab. For her 40th birthday back in June I promised to find her dream car. It was a long frustrating hunt but it finally paid off.

The car was build in September of 1969 as a 1970 model year. The car is clean and rust free but by no means is it a show car. The last owner claims to have owned it for more then 20 years where it lived in a garage in Bell Air, California. Interestingly it has the all wood gage console from the 250se. It runs well and currently everything on it works well except for the A/C and the radio. I hope to tap this forum for help in keeping it on the road and will give back whatever I can.

Regards,

Ron

Hello and welcome, Ron,

The car is a beauty, the wife (and kids) are happy, and I'm sure you're a proud man. Beautiful family you have.

Congrats on the purchase!

Hey Ron, I must say, yours is a classic *love story* with a happy ending.... a sweet gift from 14 to 40!

Congratulations!
