Mercedes Benz and old affair!

Hello members, I am new member although I have been Reading your posts for over two years.

I am semi retired, with one kid still in college, can't wait for him to finish, so as to resume spending money on my main hobby...Benz cars.

At the age of 7, I hated Mecedes Benz cars. My father was stationed in north africa, He owned a 170v, (I wish I have that car right now) and he loved to hunt dove, partridges & quail. We used the 170v to get us to the hunting areas, and dad took his shots sitting in the vehicle. He then gave the order to "Fetch", and since he did not own a hunting dog...I guess you know who did the fetching!

In 1964 a friend left his 230SL with us for 6 months, I was allowed to drive it 10 kilometers, round trip, anytime I washed and vacuumed it. You guessed it, that Baby Blue exterior was mirror finish every Saturday after noon, and that was the year I fell in love with the brand to date.
Dad went on to buy a 220S in 1967, we were still living in North Africa. That sedan drove anywhere, on any road surface, paved or not, crossed rivers and creeks that would put LandRovers to shame. It was awsome.

Today, I own a 1998 W140 & 2002 W129 (w/30m miles), I pamper both to death. I love working on my cars, I keep them looking brand new, and I need to do some interior cosmetic work on my W140, your site is the best on the internet, for references and DIY assistance.

I am a member of MBCA, North Texas Section & serve as member of the board of directors.

I am married to the same beautiful woman I met in college 34 years ago. I have two sons.
