Just picked up a 1987 560 SEL, black on black, 150k in excellent condition. It's my 4th Benz in the past 5 or so years. My Mercedes journey thus far:

1991 190E gray/gray (ex-wife's)
1998 320E burgandy/tan (wrecked)
2007 C230 black/gray (currently for sale)
1987 560 SEL black/black

One of my best friends is also a W126 junkie, I think he's had 5 different ones in the past 6 years.

I'll get a few pics when the weather clears up. I have a few projects already in the works; just a few minor exterior "mods": euro headlights, all-red tails, smoked corners. There is some very slight reconditioning to be done inside and out, just enough to have a good few days working on it.

I'll post in the wanted/for sale area as well, but I'm looking for 16x8 15-hole wheels off of a R129, and 2nd-gen euro bumpers.

As for me, I'm on my 11th year in the Army, and have a great wife and 3 year old. (He's already a Benz fan!) Looking forward to the community and hopefully a few meets in the Charlotte, NC area.

Welcome to benzworld.

That sounds like a nice 560SEL you have. Good luck finding a second generation euro bumper here in the US though... You could probably find a first generation euro bumper much easier though. I'd go with an SEC euro bumper just to have the foglights in the bumpers instead. :thumbsup:
