About 2 weeks ago I traded my 95 harley Road King for an 85 380sl. This is my first after owning 3 BMW's (bad word) and find the information here invaluable. We have put more miles on the car than I did on the bike all last year! Everything seems to work, smooth engine, no slapping, good power and a wonderful drive for a 27 year old car. Mileage is somewhat high at 160k, but the rest of the car is beautiful silver and black, 2 owner. Had a compression check and coolant pressure check and all ok. This forum is way above the competition and I am enjoying every minute, Now, I hope I did not jinx myself! Cheers!:thumbsup:

Welcome to the forum. A wealth of knowledge can be found here. Hopefully you got/can get service records for your car. They are worth their weight in gold. Enjoy the ride.

ps...grew up in the Alton area near St. Louis.

About $7000, it only had 18,000 miles and was super clean. Really wasn't looking to trade, but I'm glad I did so far. Wife did not want another 'oldcar' but now i can't keep her out of it!
