Nothing wrong with dreaming. the person with no dreams is dead, they just haven`t burried him yet.

It`s good you have it written down on paper, it makes it more real. now you have something to shoot for. otherwise it`s a fantisey (sp).

I heard a guy say one time" you only get out of life what you focus on"

"The reason most men fail, is broken focus".

I have made out my list too, now where did I put it

I have some of the things on your list in a pile in the shop to go in my 85 300D.

mechanical sun roof
heated seats (but those are going into the 84SD)
alternator (finally installed al-129x)
manual climate control
85 300TD sway bar
out side temp gauge
Sanden compressor mounts & brackets
2:47 diff

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works

A heated garage in Arizona? Isn't that a little redundant?

I'd go with smokes tails if you must have modified lenses. I like the original tails and corners, though, I think. Definitely need euro headlights, though. I just found a fire extinguisher and bracket for my W124!

1992 300D 2.5T
1980 Euro 300D (sadly, sold)
1998 Jetta TDI, 132K "Rudy"
1974 Triumph TR6
1999 Saab 9-5 wagon (wife's)
