  post locked   Mercedes/smoke coming from AC vents...HELP??  

Good morning. 1991 Mercedes 420 SEL with 190K miles. Just purchased. Remarkably good condition. Fluid levels, oil pressure, guages, all indicate normal conditions. Drove it 200 miles from Houston to San Antonio with no issues, other than a bit shaky a few times at idle. Here's the problem:

My daughter drove it last night and reported smoke coming from the AC vents just prior to the vehicle stalling. Said the smoke had a slight burning odor. Being over cautious, she had the car towed home.

Any immediate thoughts or ideas? I don't think I bought a lemon or a car with a bad engine... my gut feeling says it's something workable, not major. Thanks in advance for ANY and ALL help!
