    Well, after daily driving the blazer for over 2 years now, the gas prices are finally getting to me. So, tomorrow I am going to be the proud owner of a new to me car. Its an 85 mercedes benz 300 turbo diesel. I like the idea of 25 mpg in town and 35 on the highway much better than my blazer's 10 mpg. My brothers last job was working as a mercedes benz mechanic so he knows all the ins and outs of the mercedes. Plus, its a diesel, which regularly go for 400-500,000 miles. It aint the fastest thing in the world, but it will be a good car for me to drive from home to college and back (about 130 miles each way). Its white with a tan leather interior, all the power windows work, and the power sunroof works. :D Plus its got a trailer hitch. :haha: Anyways, I hope this isnt the wrong forum for this, but if it is, a mod can move it.

    congrats on the purchase. I've heard some of those diesels getting some kickin miles on one motor. I've talked to the benz dealer here about a unimog he had, and ended up talking to him for an hour or two..........
