Hi- I bought my yellow 1979 Mercedes Benz 300D sedan in October of this year. Neat story really- it was parked in an old chicken coop in 1982 and not started until this year. I purchased it from the 91 year old owner and have put a fair amount of work into get her road-ready again (thanks to mercedessource for all the help!). I own a few other old cars, but this is my first MB and first diesel. Working on it has been a fun learning experience. She is a pleasure to own and drive. I can't help but wonder if there are any other 300D's out there with so few miles?
