Bid price doubled toward the end of the auction to $5750 due to furious
competition.  I don't feel so bad now.

There may be trouble in minds of bidders over the DJetronic system.  Very 
fiddly if touched by an idiot and there is diminished stock of people able to 
set the early electronic injection right.  That and the rarity of new injectors 
with attendant high cost.  I scored the last six that the CC had when I was 
having the SL rejuvenated.  Two injectors had massive leakage, and I thought it 
best to resolve it in one step instead of going back in multiple times later.  
IIRC, I was charged around $280 per unit.  I had replaced two injectors a few 
years before when I had my indy defornicate the work done by a “Euro” shoppe 
the local section had a tech event at.  I made the mistake of having them do a 
tune/misfire job at the 25% “savings” offered.  Cost me $4k for their ham

 For the conservation hunt (specifically to remove snow geese) you don't need 
one, just need a hunting license in some state. You also don't need a federal 
waterfowl stamp although I've got one anyway.
During the conservation hunt there are no limits on geese shot, no limit on 
shells in the gun which is normally limited to 3. Hunting starts 30 minutes 
before sunrise and continues until 30 minutes after sunset when its normally 
sunrise to sunset.
Obviously this hunt is not for conservation of snow geese, its conservation of 
everything else by eliminating snow geese...

We drove 7125.5 miles in 2018 going from New Mexico to the east coast,
down and up the east coast, through the midwest, and back to New Mexico.

Newport Beach, CA, to Washington, D.C., is only 2648 miles or 2675 miles
depending upon whether he goes the northern route or the southern route.

If he pushes it, he could do it in three days. Relaxed driving could take
a week.

I think 380s don’t get much love anyway, much like the W114s. I’ve always 
thought they were an easy way into the R107 chassis as long as you avoided the
