My new daily driver: '05 CLK 55 AMG :)

Hello folks:

I never really saw myself as a potential MB owner. "Snooty cars, those," I thought. Drove my beloved '94 Z-28 for 14 years. Motor started knocking at 85K, and I had the friendly-local-dudes who build racing motors for boats build it to the Nth degree. Fast, that car...but unfortunately, I took out a deer with it at 75 mph beginning of the month. Pulled right out in front of me, he did. Damned deer didn't have any insurance...

So a-shopping I went. But there wasn't really anything out there that I WANTED...short of a new Murcielago. I was carsick for my Z. At length, I ended up behind the wheel of a CLS-500 or something. Nice, but underpowered. And then my brother told me that they come in a coupe. With a *blower*...

So I found one, and fell in love. Overpriced. Went shopping for the right one on Ebay, and got her last week. I love her. Too many computers and automatic stuff to suit me - it's all just stuff to fail, in my opinion. Expensive stuff. But I bought a good warranty for her, and I'm hopeful for the best.

She's tight. 27,500 miles. Clean carfax. Looks like a new car inside and out. $29,900. Silver with dark grey interior, has nav package. Texas car. How did I do?
