New member in SC

I just joined this forum and have already found a car I like and lots of great information. A little about me: live in Charleston, SC love cars, bikes, boats - basicly anything with an engine. Favorite vehicle: 2008 ML63. Fast but a little heavy, lives in the garage, afraid of oak trees in yard and rain. When I sell it, maybe soon?, some one will get a car that has been kept clean, dry and pampered with little wear and low miles. What a shame, but I bought it as a 176 tax write off for business and its business use has been slight. Other vehicles?
2008 C300 (wife's car, leased, you don't want this one as she has been trying to use it for a combo pick-up/van/delivery vehicle and the kids and i keep sneeking it out and running it hard. Amazing how well it does everything!)
1999 ML430 Pretty good car overall, I do all maintainance myself and lately there has been a lot of that. My now 18 year old daughter has been trying to kill it for over 2 years now by bumping/grazing things and her schoolmates have helped put a lot of dents in the sheetmetal in the school lot but it is still cheaper and safer than anything i am willing to buy her. My problem is her 16 year old brother who dreams of being the next Mario Andretti is getting ready to share it with her and everyone is a little worried: me - slow it down; 16 YO son: I wish it handled better; 18 YO: he's going to ruin it! Yeah, like you didn't!
1987 190 2.3 16 Fun!
and others, ever changing.
Looking forward to contributing, sharing and learning.
