Fingers crossed that we will soon join your ranks as Benz owners!
My sister has a 1987 300TD converted to run on veggie oil, we sold our 2007 Sienna minivan to be free from a car loan. We've been hobbling along on a 1987 Volvo 240 sedan that we got on Craigslist for $1k but the 3 kids are either going to kill each other or put us in the madhouse by the end of the month if we don't get the daily commute into a 7 passenger vehicle soon.
I wish we had known of the glories of the Mercedes wagon years ago! My Mercedes experience was all from when I lived in Germany, where all the 'grown-ups' I knew had them, and all of the poor students like me had little VW Polo or similar. Little did I know that I could maybe hang with the grown-ups some day!
A candidate 1994 320E wagon is on its way to the mechanic tomorrow to determine whether its something we want to get. We are hoping against hope that it will work out. Fingers tightly crossed!
