Over doing it!

Hi Im Dale. I just retired from the plumbers union. I am a Vietnam Marine combat veteran. I am a prostate cancer survivor.

In 1968 I bought a 1958 190 SL roadster for $1300. I was in Sothern Cal with still in the Marines. The body and top were perfect. I had a buddy who had an MGA we would drive up through Irvine Park. My car would go 130 mph on a good straight away. I had the top end done and brand new Solex dual throat carbs installed by an Orange County Mercedes Dealer. I went TAD to MCAS Yuma AZ and when I returned my wife of a year or so and the Mercedes were GONE. I loved that car!!!

A couple of years ago I got a '82 300 D for $1000. Then a friend sold me his '77 300d for $300. Then a neighbor sold me her '84 300 SD for $1200. Yesterday I bought a '89 420 SDL for $2000. (for my wife ). Is there a twelve step group for me???

Nice to be here,
