Hi, I'm Michelle and I live in Bridge City. Yep, that little town that was wiped out by storm surge as a result of Hurricane Ike. Seriously, I cannot get out of the town fast enough.

Now about my MB.... It's actually my second C280, the first was a 2000, champagne color, but was totaled in an accident about 3 months after I bought it. What that car did for me was introduce me to a finer ride and performance unparalleled in any other vehicle. I've always been an import girl, but I'd never driven a car like this before, and let me just say.... I WAS HOOKED!!

So 2 weeks ago I picked up a 98 C280 that had been one owner, white, has the original first aid kit, and original owners manual, tool kit, but sadly she let the headliner fall, and while there were no stains in the carpet, (very unusual for this age car) I'm not sure she ever actually detailed the interior. Naturally, the first thing I did was lovingly wash the exterior, clay the entire thing, than used a cleaner wax... WOW what a gorgeous car. I had the headliner replaced immediately, tinted the windows, and detailed the interior, new MB floor mats, and viola! A stunning piece of machinery. A truly lovely car with all the ride you could ever ask for.

My husband is doing the under hood changes as the car is about to pass the 100k mark in the next couple of months. All in all, I'm way impressed with my MB and Lord willing, will own many, many more in the years to come.

Michelle and Bill
