Ode to the grease car

Yet another grease car bites the dust. Even his description explains he couldn't keep up. I'm sure it is possible to run a perfect grease car forever, but the amount of work is considerable. It seems that many people get enamored with the idea, but just aren't willing to put in the work.

Another MB in good hands! Take it home, clean it up, remove the vegoil stuff, fix the glow plugs, change all the fluids and the rear diff oil since it probably hasn't had proper maintenance done in a long time.
