RE: New Member Saying Hello
Thanks, everyone, for the welcome!
@ Benz Devil: lol... as of this moment, no, I am not residing in NYC, but it is another of my life dreams. I visited that greatest of cities twice, and from the first time I laid eyes on it, I just instantly *knew* in my heart, that that place was "home". As soon as I am able, I am moving to NYC for good.
Unfortunately, I have spent the first half of my life in wretched Los Angeles. Lemme just say this... some people love the idea of California and Los Angeles. Live here your whole life, and you'll absolutely hate it. The place is a smog-infested oven, and I can't wait to leave it for good.
Actually, it was while I was in NYC during my first trip there, that I saw my very first Maybach 62 on the open road. I was in Times Square, crossing the street, and low and behold, right in front of me, was a dark blue Maybach 62, sitting right there, waiting for the light to turn green! I snapped a photo of it, and I have it saved on a CDR somewhere. As soon as I locate it, I'll post it for you all.
I would assume that lots of New Yorkers like Mercedeses just as much as anyone else. I have seen quite a few S-Classes on my visits to NYC. I'm sure you'll see lots of them in the financial district, in southern Manhattan.
@ matteus: lol... well, my father was bugging the hell out of me to buy a brand-new car, so I would not have any mechanical problems to worry about. We were both VERY experienced with the problems that come with owning an older 'Benz... vacum pump issues, alternators, loss of air conditioning, and the cost of repairing it, etc. So, since the Focus hatchback was one of the few new American cars I actually liked the design of, and it was affordable for us, I chose that. It is a great little car, and perfect for running about town, and has just enough room for me and one of my buddies. I enjoy it, especially since it's my first car with working air conditioning! lol.
I fully intend to keep the Focus, but I want that beautiful light ivory 300E, for my "weekend" car, so I can have a comfortable car for taking long road trips in. The Focus will be my work car.
