'86 300E...where it all started

I will ditto it a fabulous car. My '86 has 202k miles on it (not km) and the engine is strong as an ox, and uses no oil whatsoever. The transmission is still original so it leaks a tad because of 17 year old seals, but nothing to worry about at this point. Worst feature for me has been the heater/ac blower motor which constantly blows fuses when used on high speed. There is a MB fix which is cheap (by MB standards) at $100 but I just haven't gotten it done yet. The interior is semi-spartan but very well done, the Becker radio leaves something to be desired, the leather is showing its age, but damn....I love this car! This is a classic MB...perhaps among the very best models ever produced!
