Hey guys,

Been driving an old MB diesel for the past four years. Did tons of work on it as well as some other cars, but now I'm gettin' a 1989 GL wagon. 5-speed with the on-demand 4x4, 1.8 NA engine, power everything. 95,000 original miles, been sitting for the past six months, but got running and drove around a little this weekend. Runs like a champ. Everything works, except the windows seem to have some gremlins in them. Some rot, but nothing compared to my old MB.

I've got a four-hour drive from NY to MA to get it home, so first off, is there anything I outta get done before I make this drive? When I get home, I plan on replacing all the fluids, checking the timing belts and generally cleaning and tuning it up.

At 95K if there isn't any head gasket issue (unlikely at that low), I bet you will be fine. Just bring those fluids along for the drive home and allow extra time.
