I am Dave Wood and I ride kangaroos to work, drink beer all day commencing at 6AM, and we grow prawns in our fish tank in the lounge so supply the BBQ at regular intervals.
We drove a unique 280TE for many years until the mechanic failed to check on the very minor water loss as directed. We went to Africa for 4 years and on a return trip found that the 280 was dead from a blown head-gasket, and the water had rusted out much of the non-alloy internals.
Back in Aus in late 2008 I found an ML500 online and snapped it up. Not a classic as was the 280, but a fairly nice drive all the same.
My wife now 'owns' it [that's Aus for she loves the thing] so I only get to drive on trips. With 3 'parking mishaps' one of which required replacing the tailgate, she is becoming a pro at it.
Now thinking about next MB for mid to late 2011. Any suggestions? the space is really good in the ML.
