What force compels a middle aged man to sell an Oldsmobile and buy a 22 year old 300TD with 169K miles on it? At any rate, it's a done deal and hopefully the beginning of a new car adventure. The car has many small problems, but I have a good mechanic and a strange addiction to the clatter of 5 cylinder diesels. The forum was a great resource and very encouraging of taking the MB plunge.
Don't feel like you've lost your mind. I sold an immaculate Buick Park Avenue to buy my W123 and mine was falling apart when I got it. My '83 still needs a lot of work, but it's getting there slowly and I like it a lot; especially the cost of fuel.
