I'm new here
Just to introduce myself. I participate on another forum but am new here.
I'm from Sydney, Australia where I am currently one of the Vice Presidents of the Mercedes-Benz Club (NSW) Inc. I have been an active club member since 1985.
I have owned my 1973 icon gold with parchment MB-tex 350SLC since 1983. It was my first MB and is is a less than perfect looking, high mileage example that is very reliable and still much loved.
We have owned our (my wife drives this one too) 1990 arctic white with cream-beige tex 300TE since 1998. It is a near perfect, concours class winner despite being a daily driver with over 170,000km. We both love this wagon.
The 1990 arctic white with blue leather 190E 2.3 Sportline 5 speed manual is only a new toy that I couldn't resist due to its extreme rarity in Oz. Does anyone know how many of these were made, especially in right hand drive? It has covered 211,000km and is very original without any evidence of accident damage. With some TLC it should clean up nicely.
Along the way we have owned others including a 1980 300TD and a 1992 180E (190E 1.8 in other markets) 5 speed manual. Both my wife's and my families are also MB owners.
I look forward to participating in this forum.
