Re-entered the wonderful world Mercedes-Benz last night: bought a 1989 300SE. Looks and rides pretty good for a car with 223,000 on it, "mostly highway miles." Didn't care. I convinced my mom to buy a 1964 280SEL back in 1969; I was 17. My five sisters and I drove it hard and fast, and it didn't last, so Mom bought a 1969 220x (? memory failure) a few years later and loved it until the transmission crapped out in 1974. Of all the cars I have ever driven, those were two of my favorites, but I didn't remember that until a few days ago as I was deciding which car I should replace my 2006 Mazda3 Hatchback with. The Mazda is too LOUD and I need a quiet car. So there we have it. It needs some TLC but I do most of my own tech work, so we'll see.
