Glad you all like it - I'm really enjoying it thus far. I just contacted the Classic Center and should have my build sheet and info by this Friday according to the gal I'm talking with.
I'm digging more and more into the history on the car and that's what I'm really enjoying most. It's been in 2 shows (Concours & an MBCA show), both of which it was 1st place, I've got what appears to be what would have been the original 'window sticker', and invoices for the last 5 years of service - which isn't a lot considering it's age, but the shop that did the work is local and gives pretty much took care of all things in need of replacing - such as calipers, pads and rotors, bushings, and other suspension parts that were worn out. Also, in the trunk was the original MBZ tool kit and 1st aid kit - all of which is in German. Really cool stuff.
I'm also working with a company right now in reverting the stereo back to original - so that's my first project aside of all the fluid maintenance and a good detailing of the car.
