1983 Mercedes 300D
This car has been in Bruce's family since it was purchased new in 1983.
It came to live with him in November 1998. It was, and still is,
in near perfect shape. It currently has 217K miles. When he got it
he decided that the 1980's stereo cassette needed to be replaced with something a bit more modern...things got a little out of hand then.
All work has been performed by Bruce himself, except for the alarm.
