I know where you're coming from, Lou! I've got a company car to drive, so the 3 Queens stay warm and dry in two garages. (Thus the term Garage Queen
) I bought them at various times in my life, they were beautiful, and I could never sell them. The 190 is a show car and has around 57K miles, the 240D was a steal and I've had it professionally restored to near perfection. Always wanted an SL and talked the wife into letting me get one. It is in great condition and is a blast to drive, especially in the summer - so it gets the bulk of miles for now. They are sources of great pride and enjoyment for me, and I like to keep them in pristine condition.
And to quote from Lou: "I know many of you will think I am bordering on insanity but to each their own!"
