I caught the bug

This thing followed me home last night. Not sure how that happened
Its an 84 300D with a blown engine and pretty mangled front clip. Someone swapped the good hood and fenders off this car for one that had been hit. Headlights and taillights are off but in the car, grill is missing and intake and exhaust manifolds and turbo are gone. Seems pretty much rust free, I'm sure the floors probably have some rust as I saw some in the underside trunk area, haven't had a chance to look at it in daylight. My doors are all dented up and these are straight so planning on swapping doors over. The paint looks to be the same color but if not I'll wait to swap till I paint the 85. 369000 on the odometer, I asked him what happened to the engine and he said too many oil leaks. Sounds like they ran it out of oil and it either seized or threw a rod. For $200 it still has alot of parts I can use and saves me trips to the junkyard.

1985 Mercedes 300D bought for $400 work in progress. Video Playlist:
