Looking for Another Diesel

I can't believe this. I had a nice looking but problematical 83 300CD. It was an admitedly nice looking car but needs someone who has the time to take care of it. I thought the wife would be happy because it is one less car in a very overcrowded driveway. NOT!
So I told her I would start looking for another Diesel, this time a nice and probably expensive one. I still have a 300D, my beater, and hope to stay in the 617 motor family.
Does anyone have recent experience with any dealers who specialize in the older diesels? I'm going to take my time this time around and run to maybe 9K or so at the top end.
Women !
