Proud owner of second Benz

I am the ole dawg of the forum I would guess. I work as a hardware engineer in Silicon Valley, Pro Bass Angler, love cars, boats, wine making, beer making and love drinking what I make.

I have always loved Super Cars and Super Trucks. I even tow my Bass boat (Ranger Z-21) with a RAM SRT-10. My first Benz was a 2001 CL500 tricked out with a body kit and 20' rims. My Son is a Benz Service Advisor in Sacramento and would give me a hard time about this CL500 trying to look like an AMG, he was right. A 2005 CL65 with 25k miles became available at his dealership and I said save it for me. I love the W215 chassis and did not want a newer one. Needless to say, I'm a happy camper and my kid now says I got a grown folk's toy. I was tempted do a few things to her, put my kid said leave it alone unless you want some crazy stuff like Kleemann ECM or their other mods. I will not write about the CL65, I am sure enough has already been written. She is my big Vette killer and anything else that wants to try and pass when I differ.

I am happy to be aboard.
