Wife and 500SEL

When i got married i bought a 84 500SEL and did some restoration. I would never let my new wife drive the car, no matter what.
I had to travel out of the country and she saw me put the keys in my suitcase. She asked if the house caught afire how would she be able to move the car out of the garage.
I told her " LET IT BURN BABY"
We divorced a few weeks after..........

I could understand that attitude with a 300SL Gulllwing or a restored 70's cabrio, but that's a little much for a 500SEL (IMO). 80's era Mercedes are cheaper than divorces.

Good luck from here.
