on the road again

after a year and a half of dithering & some work, my 91 300d is registered & inspected. I am pleased that for the most part it runs and drives nicely. A longish list of little stuff remains to be sorted, but I am happily driving it about to & from work now.

I tried to post pictures but they failed to upload. I will work on this as time allows.

This forum and its search function has been a great resource for helping me get it running again. Thank you, everyone.

Good show, both of you. A non-running car is a planter. Or maybe a rust factory. Sometimes a shelf. But once on the road again it's a CAR!

I hadn't driven my 06 E320 CDI for 35 days!

It's a shame it just sits in the garage several months a year.

Keep 'em flying!

Quahog, next time you're OFF ISLAND give me a shout and we can admire one another's vehicles.
