Time for Another MB
Back in the market for another MB. I've been hooked ever since a friend gave me a 1979 250SEL(maybe a 350 I forget) while I was stationed in Germany. Best driving car I have ever owned. Car lasted about 2 months as the rear trailing arm body mount had rusted beyond what I was willing to repair. Trailing arm never actually broke away but it was at nasty looking mess under there. I sold it for $25, the cost of the registration transfer.
So here I am again. The wife wants an convertible that seats 4. A buddy at work has a 1999 convertible that she likes. We've had some experience with the A4/S4 and she hates the back seats although they drive great. I drive a 540i/6 as a daily so she doesn't want another BMW.
As my username suggests I come from a VW background and have a 1986 GLi I autox and have been prepping for the $2009 Grassroots Motorsports Challenge. Lots of aircooled experience in my youth and still plan to build an early car one of these days.
On top of all that, I was at an autox this weekend and saw a W108 or W109 flying around the course and now I'm shopping for one with a V8. We'll see what ends up coming home. Regardless, I'll need a bigger garage.
