W124 300E 1990, Fantastic!!
Hi, since I was a little boy, I was connected with Mercedes Benz, because my granpa had a w114 250 1968. In that car we waited for my granma to came out of the supermarket, I do spent a great time with him in the olÂ´Benz. Then he get an w116 450SEL, that was the very first car that I drove. While keeping the old W114 (the brontosaur, as we called because its gray color and its age= Then he got sick and had to sell the 450SEL. While the bronto (W114) was always there, and get a new engine this time, a diesel one (OM616) from a w115 240D, now the bronto really roars!! The time pass and the bronto gave up. It was really sad to see it gone. My granpa got really sad, so my uncly appears with a very well cared W108 280S 1971, as a gift for him. He couldnt believe that it was a gift from his loving son. He drove that car too little because his sickness, and passed away two years later. My uncle, got a brand new w202 C220 in 1996, wich I used when got married used.
When my granpa passed away I kept the W108. I was in college and coudnÂ´t afford that car so I sadly had to sell it, a piece of me went with it.
The years pass and I forgot what means drive an MB, but last year my wifeÂ´s Audi A4 2005 had some incident with a tree, and had to be repainted. Wich means that we have to share our only car, it was terrible. So I started to look after a spare car and I found a real jewel, a W124 300E 1990, very cheap, but truly a Mercedes Benz. It remebers me what are Mercedes Benz made of. Now the Audi its sitting at the dealer because an odd failure and my wife wants an W202 that we see in a dealer lot, let see if we can get it cheap!!
So Mercedes Benz for life!!
