If you know anything about cars you'll know the 1984 300TD was one of the best cars built also, most compatible for bio-diesel or vegetable oil conversion, should you so choose. I called her my Apocalypse mobile, we've traveled and camped and slept in cathedrals of trees together. Am losing a dear friend. So, I'm in no rush to sell her, she has to go to the right home.
