97 E300

I bought this car about a month ago because fuel prices were a-risin' and I was thinking that I'd like a car that I could easily convert to an alternate oil if petrol-diesel continued to climb. Well, it's cheaper to keep driving my Jeep at the moment, but I still dig the Benz.

Anyway, I've always been attracted to the 96-00 E-class. At my first job out of the military, (late 1997) my boss had one. It was definitely the coolest car in the parking lot. His was a company car - the first Benz purchased by the company and within 6 months the majority of the executives had traded their company cars in on E-class Benzes. At the time, it was THE car to envy.

Mine needs a little work at the moment - new glow plugs are on-order to arrive next week. I'm not looking forward to that job; at a minimum, I know what I'm getting into.
