Hello from Upstate NY

My name is Kevin and I am a Benzaholic. There I feel much better. And apparently I am not alone. My main career is Corrugated- not CARDBOARD- Corrugated. I sell sheets of the stuff to folks that make cartons and displays. My secondary career is body work. I have been doing that for about 35 years.
I made the mistake of buying a wrecked 1998 E320 two years ago. The older fella I bought it from tried to warn me to sell it after I fixed it, and try not to drive it. I realize now what he was getting at. I am hooked. Around town the E320 doesn't get passed by many other cars from the light. On the road I get over 30 mpg. So of course now I am faced with buying a '01 S500 that I am currently doing rust repair on. The saga continues.......
