My 19th car is finally a Mercedes

I seem to have had them all, but I tell ya, a Mercedes just feels right.

I recently bought a 1993 Mercedes 300SD and am loving it. (It's also my first diesel, and I just can't believe I'm saving gas money on my commute driving this massive hunk of pleasure.)

It's not without it's problems, but I think I got a pretty good deal.

It needs brakes (I need to find out if I have Ate or Girling calipers before I order the parts) and the A/C fixed. I wouldn't mind getting another key.

The comparable cars I've had were a 1997 Lincoln Town Car and a 1993 Lexus LS400. I liked both of those cars, but they just weren't this. I have this overall sense of pride when I walk up and get into a Mercedes. MY Mercedes. It's hard to explain it exactly. This is my 19th car in the last 18 years. (I'm a bit of an aficionado.) My 20th is likely to be a Mercedes too.

Nice to meet you all. I have a feeling I'll be here a while.
