New member from Akron Ohio

Hello, This is Lenskeeper, a new member from Akron Ohio. I've been a life long Mercedes fan.

My first Mercedes was a 220SEb that I first learned to appreciate the technology of a mercedes in the mid 1960's the car was on it last legs only 3 shock mounts - the 4th rusted away. The car still handeled better than american cars of the era.

My next a 1966 300SE with 230k mikes - still drove beautifuly, smooth and fast - wow. drove smoother than new U.S cars of the time.

I moved up to a 1972 280 sedan that I drove from 1977 until 1985.

I currently own a 560SEL that is unfirtunately now on it's last legs,

I also have a nice 1984 380SL that is a great toy to cruse in on sunny afternoons

My wife just traded her loved 1996 C220 for a new to us C350 which is a great car - my 6'4" frame fits in well with plenty of leg room

Helo to all
