I currently drive a 1982 240D that is rotting out after almost twenty years of New England winters. (Two years ago, before I realized the extent of the body rot, I installed a new engine. Wish I could have those dollars back...) Anyway, I'm looking at a low mileage 1976 280C that appears to be in good condition. In reviewing messages on this board, I detect some ambivalence about this model. For example, there was one message indicating that the car's engine is notoriously difficult to tune due to carberator anomalies. Can anyone expand on this or other problems? Anyone care to comment on the virtues of the 280C?
Thanks in advance.
