So I picked up my 82 280CE Euro today in St. Louis, Mo.

Well, I went there today, and picked her up. Lets just say...she's not at all, what I expected.

There's rot, in a lot of places, The interior, is barely marginal, and there are various misc. issues with a lot the car's systems.

She runs really well, shifts great, and has done good for the past 300 miles of the trip to my friend's house in Tennessee. I'm still on my way there, from St. Louis Missouri.

I don't think the pics I was sent of the car were very explanatory, and I did kinda jump the gun, and just buy it, without going to look at it first.

So far though, I like the car. All Euro. The original owner, even left his plate on the car, Illinois..."No US 82" Cool huh?

Gues I got some more plates for my garage wall. She will be fixed up reguardless of her shortcoming though. I cannot wait to tear into her, as soon as I get her home, (And I get home), whenever that turns out to be.. Wish me luck though, because I know I'll need it with this one. Anyone know who sells patch panels, Quarter panels, or atleast rear cheater panels for this coupe..? The car is going to Mercedes dealer, body shop anyways, but if I can find the parts, brand new, on my own, it will save me a lot of grief.. Need RH Front fender, in light blue/Blue-Silver, whatever they call the color, if anyone has one lying around..

Thanks, Nick
