This will be my first W126 Merc so I will likely be a frequent visitor to this forum. Here is a pic of Coda at her new home.
Very nice. Welcome to the forum.

Took Coda out last night for my usual Saturday evening on the town. Since I work second shift, it is my one evening each week that I get to go out to dinner or a movie. She definitely commands some attention as there are not many diesel W126's roaming the streets of downtown Wichita on Saturday evening.

This morning, I decided to take her to my usual coffee spot and noticed that she had let a small amount of oil loose on the driveway over night. I am not an expert but, from what I can see, it appears that the leak is coming from the main seal . At this point I am not alarmed as it is a 28 year old car with nearly 239k miles and it is a very small amount.

Wish mine were that clean underneath. You can't guess at a leak (if you want to fix it without throwing unnecessary parts).

Man. Just $3k for such a nice car. I wonder if I should just drag mine to the scrap yard.
