1982 300SD My Beast
This is my 1982 300SD, it originated in Southern PA, where we found it on ebay. It had been a trade in by the original owner at a lexus dealership, and was then auctioned off to the dealer I got it from. Its not perfect, but I love every minute of driving it, and the engine is unusually smooth. Bought it with 207,128k on the clock in July 2003 , am now at ~320,000.

Mods include:
1985 torque converter/transmission
1991 350SDL interior
Gauge panel with Voltmeter, 12V outlet, and Boost Gauge
Lights from late W126
