So I thought I would start a journal for my 1984 Mercedes 190E AMG. I don't think any of you have seen this car yet because I didn't bring it to any of the meets last year and it's currently still hibernating. I brought it to the tavern on a few Sundays last year while the Skyline was waiting for new shoes. Anyway I thought I'd share with the group what has been done to it over the past few years.
Here's a pic I took last year



My Uncle bought this car in 1988, he then gave it to my Dad in the late 90's, and my Dad gave it to me in May of 2009. About two weeks after I received ownership of the car, this happened :(





Broken timing chain, chewed up timing guides, three bent valves, head needed to be rebuilt, and a small piece broke off of the block. So instead of replacing all of the broken parts I ended up getting a working engine from another 190E and dropped that in the car. The newer engine was from an early 90's 190E and was also a 2.3 8v compared to the broken 2.0 8v.

Pic of the broken 2.0 8v (notice no timing chain)



Waiting for the new engine. Sorry for the bad quality pics my phone was the only camera i had at the time.





Sorry I don't have any photos of the new engine in the car but it looks almost the same as the old engine. This engine is only temporary as I am looking for a 2.3-16v or 2.5-16v to put in the car.

The car was recently repainted by Kenny Lang due to hail damage. After repaint no wing on



Some pics from 2008 i think







I recently put a new Alpine head unit in







German plate that was on the car when it was imported in 88. I'm gunna repaint it this year



The car is fun to drive but just needs more power which is why I wanna put a better engine in. I plan to keep this car till I die because if I sold it now I wouldn't even get 5G's for it and the sentimental value I have for it is MUCH higher.
