Josiah McCoyGreetings Benz owners. I will be purchasing my first Mercedes later this week. I have yet to see the car in person but for $600 one cannot turn this deal down. The car is a 1977 MB 240D sedan. The owner is leaving this week for the Army and he is unable to keep the car. His parents told him if he is unable to sell it it will be headed to the scrap yard after he leaves. I refuse to see that happen!So come Friday I will be the new owner of a beautiful, classic Benz.
Here's just some basic details:
- 210, 000 miles
- 99% original (numbers matching)
- Inspected through 06/2013
- New tires, battery, solenoid, and headlights
- Interior 8/10 : small crack in dash & no carpet
- Exterior 9/10 : 3 small spots of rust (surface)
- Has trouble starting in cold weather. There doesn't seem to be a block heater installed. If so, that may be the issue.
My build plan with this vehicle is clean and classy. I've owned two Hyundai coupes, an Acura RSX/DC5, and a 1985 Golf GT. All of which had various modifications to them from body kits to engine work. Currently, I own two mopeds: 1980 Sachs Sundancer and 1980 General 5 Star. This Benz will be the first car I have owned that I wont just play around with.
- Install carpet
- New dash
- Upgraded audio (simple)
- Install block heater
- Replace all broken trim
SPRING 2013 : GET HER READY FOR THE SHOW SEASON
- Widened factory style steel wheels w/ factory mini moon hub caps (f8''/r9'')
- Factory-looking tire dimensions
- Slight static suspension drop (I want air sooo bad... but I'm keeping this simple.)
- High-flow exhaust
- LED interior lights

The color, red, causes bulls to run at you. Madd people may escalate upon seeing a wench in a red hooded sweat shirt. It's the color of valentines, if I haven't past the last phase of syph. And red are the tires on my bicycle, the most wonderful bike I've ever owned.
The tires were old, anyhoo, and then I destroyed the back one trying to mount a motor kit to it. Mission Gas Moped failed, having ground a hold the size of a quarter, so I copped the cheapest new tires possible. Metric size. Pain. I had to order red side wall dirt riding tires, because they were they only kind going cheap

Obsession with bin Laden
crosses all frontiers
By Robert Fisk
After Osama, 'Godfather of Terror'' - our very own cliché - comes Osama, 'Saviour of the Muslim World'', Osama, the 'New Saladin'', Osama 'V Mahdi''. Amid the blue moped fumes of the Peshawar bazaar, his face beams out of a hundred bookshops, turbaned, wise, half-smiling, disembodied.
On the front cover of Khaled Choudhury's, Osama bin Laden: Freedom Fighter or Terrorist? - readers may guess which conclusion the author draws - Mr bin Laden gazes down at us from the sky above the snows of the Afghan mountains
