I just brought and drove it home a used 1982 300TD station wagon, two weeks ago. Everything works, well sort of, mileage 200720, broken speedometer, no smoke, and it actually drives pretty nice for a 30 year old car. Not perfect but okay.

My wife isn't too happy about me buying the car but I think once I get everything fixed and it purrs like a kitten, she'll change her mind.

I changed the oil and filter, had the brake fluid flushed, Cleaned and lubed two of the power windrows, two more to go. Washed and vacuumed it out, I found lots of dry dog food under one to the seats. i have lots of little things to fix myself and I'm sure a couple of fixes that the shop is going to do. Btw...I have a shop appointment next Friday for a installation of a new windrow regulator, mine has teeth missing in a couple of places, plus get a hopefully short laundry list of things to fix.

I want to make the car my daily driver in town and yes...out of town too!

Attaching a couple of pictures of my German bucket of lovable bolts!

Any thoughts, opinions or advice is always welcome! :)

Very cool car. Just to let you know, window regulators are very easy to replace yourself. I don't know how much the shops charging but just know its an easy DIY job. :)
