Its been a lifelong dream, to own a car made in the city where I was born.
This is one of the last true diesels, before they went to aluminum heads. Cast steel block and heads, double roller timing chain. Mechanical injection pump, that means when war breaks out, EMP pulse will not fry this cars computer. It has none.
It will burn used cooking oil, without the expensive refining that the computerized diesels need. It will even burn used motor oil.
If you need a car, look at the pre 1985 Mercedes diesels. Why Rich people get rid of them, I don't know. They are built to last a owners lifetime, and his offspring.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
