nise looking DT. very excellent condition. i like the roof rack. why does ur oil pressure gauge show full pressure when the motor's off? (unless the motor was on and cold, and ur tach doesnt work, but i dont know that.) if the tach is not working, clean the magnetic tach sensor mounted by the flywheel with some spray, and wipe it off, that should do the trick.

Cool to see another rider sporting a W123. I also have that Yakima rack, need one more tray, and I'll have the gold version. What do you mostly ride, MTB?

Amsoil300cdt;
Yes it is running and cold. Actually the tack is intermitant. I was told to clean the large black cylidrical thing (I think its a diagnosis port?) on the front drivers fender. Well that fixed it. But the electrical contact cleaner I used melted some white plastic stuff in there. I have yet to get back in and fix it. I have given up working on cars when the temprature is in the thirties. So soon enough it will look much better. Thanks for the fly wheel tip though I will remember it.

We actually ride road mainly. I trashed my knee when I was 14 competeing in a mountain bike race. Couple more good jolts and I'll have to get a brand new one.[:(] We mainly ride the great ohio bike adventure (http://www.goba.com 300 miles in a week. its a really fun ride. The rack is up there because the 300d is getting ready to be a support vehical for the ride. Well its in June but I'm tring to get it together now. My wife rides a recumbent. I don't know if you can tell the one rack is longer than the other. I'm tring to customize the racks. I need to carry 5 bikes 5 people and camping gear for 5. May need to add a trailer. Know of anyone whose done that yet? Any advice is apprecated.
Thanks

Hey Dave & Lauren,

The car seems more white than I imagined. Yes perhaps it is indeed Ivory White, that's what I first thought of when I saw it.

The car's pinstripe amuses me, I've never seen one like yours--that goes all the way to the trunk. Not bad at all, just something new to see. [;)]

Enjoy!!
