Hello everyone,

Hello everyone!
I am a mechanical engineering student at Georgia Tech and I own a 1980 Orient Red 300SD and a 79 Silver Grey 300SD. I bought the 80 as my first car this spring and the 79 as a parts car about a month later. My family also own a smattering of old Benz, including a 240D and a 190D 2.5 and a few other projects. Build threads hopefully will happen in the future, but school has me hopelessly busy most of the time.

Checking in from Los Angeles, CA with a 1980 300SD. Very little surface rust leads me to believe it's been a California car all its life but I just don't know much about her history.

I'd be interested in a W116 meetup or just connecting with other members in the area. I'm specifically in the San Fernando Valley.

Hello all,

My mistress and I reside in Austin, Texas.  She is much better looking than me -- a 1979 6.9 in 930 silver-blue over blue leather.  There are not so many 6.9 owners in Texas!  I have never seen another on the street.  Heck, W116's in general are pretty thin on the ground here.  You see a tired old 300SD occasionally and that's about it.
