New member longtime MBZ owner

I bought my first MBZ in 1988 - a 300D which I wish I still had, but a bad mechanic got his hands on it and the rest is history.
Lesson learned and I bought another MBZ and found a new mechanic.
I replaced the 300D with a 300 SD. I'm 5'1" and had to point my toes to "step on it." Sold the SD and bought a '93 E300 that was rear-ended by an MBZ SUV (ironic), tossed 20 feet and hit again by the same SUV (tow operator said that I would have been dead or seriously injured in any other car). I took the total $ and bought an E320. It was, as all MBZs have been great cars, great drivers and very dependable, but there was something missing...

I now have a classic '94 E320 convertible and absolutely love it. My new neighbor is German and a Daimler engineer. If my car ever goes missing, I'm knocking on his door first.
