Cool new member introduction

New member today. Recently purchased 2 Benz's.

For my 50th birthday this week I traded my 2008 Z06 Corvette on a IWC Edition SL63 with 2700 miles.

Just bought my wife a new 2012 ML Bluetec diesel with all the options.

The SL63 rocks. Last Sunday I drove it from Scottsdale to Yuma to Ocitillo CA, then drove the hell out of it on a number of very nice back roads from there up trough Julian, Lake Elsinore and then to Laguna Beach where we spent a couple of days at the Montage. We then drove it to our vacation home in Las Vegas through Death Valley.

For the last 27 years I have owned and operate a diesel engine and diesel injection service business in Alberta Canada. I am past president and current board member of the Association of Diesel Specialists. Association of Diesel Specialists | Diesel Service | Diesel Repair

I have loved fast cars for as long as I can remember. Have done the Bondrant, Ron Fellows, (corvette) Petty (Nascar) and years ago Frank Hawley (drag racing) schools.

However last week driving the hell out of the SL with that incredible gearbox, top down, sun shining and my wife yelling at me to slow down because I was taking the 40 mph corners at 90+ was one of the best days I have ever spent in a car.

Always looking to learn about my cars and I hope this forum adds a little to my knowledge
