Cool Greetings

It is truly a privilege to be affiliated with such a distinguished group. Six months ago, I stepped out on faith and purchased a 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Roadster via eBay which I have rated as one of the most stressful business transaction of a lifetime. I had to pay over $3000 in repair expenses within the first month of purchasing the car and the dealer avoided all communication with my lawyer and me. EBay provided a free Vehicle Protection Plan which only reimbursed individual damage/repair costs in excess of $1000. Despite the incurred unexpected expenses and problems with the radio/GPS which appears to be locked, I am very happy with my car and always receive compliments, especially when the convertible hardtop is down.
In the past, I only dreamed about owning a Mercedes and would settle for a practical car like a SUV or 4-door car that would accommodate my family and dog. After serving 21 years in the Army, surviving breast cancer, and undergoing decompression of the brain, I figured it was time for me to just think about me so I procured my dream car and I am not exaggerating when I write "my dream car". For years, I've had a picture of a 2003 Mercedes SL500 posted on my wish board with a small picture of my face in the driver's seat and I promised myself that I would get this car when I retired for the military. Well, I have decided to give the military at least two-three more years but I refused to wait another day without owning my dream car.
