The 280SE is running better than ever after a few more tankfulls of fuel. It seems to start easily, and the throttle is more responsive. Temperatures are warmer as well. Today we ran across town to get latex gloves and visit a Gearhead friend. Soon another Gearhead appeared, and we had an impromptu bull session. We discussed the merits of the fluted euro headlights vs the US version, side marker lights, red turn signals, etc. Good stuff. All too soon, phones started ringing, and we were all off to other chores….
