thanks for the tip grubeguy, will check it out.
jackasic, i'm normally a purist when it come to cars from makers that earn my respect as a mechanic. but with this car, well i can't get the parts and info i need to make it work as original, and it needs enough restorative work that it'd end up a car made by me based on a mercedes anyhow, so i'm going with that, it's a tribute. i plan to make it look like a box stock '73 220 with missing hubcaps (things are way too expensive, and i don't live in the best part of town) and a nice silver paintjob. under the hood it will hopefully take a couple seconds before an average person can notice exactly how out of place the heart of this beast is going to be. so yes, i hate that i must resort to chevrolet to get this car running, but i hope that i can do it at least some justice.
not a hater of mods, but not really a fan either. unless it's a bently grill on a buick regal, then i'll hate like an old man with a waterballoon fight happening on his lawn!
