Jonathan writes, "I have been the owner of this Mercedes-Benz Type 190 Ponton sedan for four years. I was given the car by someone cleaning out the garage of a deceased relative. I knew little about it at the time. I am working on getting her running someday. I rebuilt the engine and have most of the parts which I have obtained between trips to Germany (I work for an airline). My motivation is great, yet knowledge factor is low. Also, I have a three month old son. He is not quite ready to give me a hand yet."

"Jeff, you have taken this site and made it a much more functional one. Thanks for the encouragement that it gives us Mercedes-Benz Ponton owners!"
