Maybe we can form a mercedesshop group with a section in Michigan.
I see another one in the Ann Arbor area very active here as well.
No need to take pictures, but if posible, do a walk around to see if there are dents or dings. See if the interior, engine bay, etc are in clean and good order. How about the mechanicals or maintainance. No hurry as the earliest time I can look is between mid-Dec and early Jan. Maybe we can plan some get together there.
Is the 87 300SDL a long body 126 chassis car? The mileage has reached a point that many things might need replacing.
