New member ... so, I started to feel as a king!

Hi every body

Nice to meet you here in Benz world, my name is Abanoosi and as a new member from the heart of Africa (Sudan) to be honest Iím in Benz world just before 2 months when I bought this car, it is 1986 w124 200D Mercedes, 6 cylinders engine with automatic gearbox, light ivory color which lately I knew itís used in Germany for taxies. Pls, let me tell you how itís gone with me.

First, I found hand break is not working, I fixed it ($ 70 cost!!) when I cried the mechanic said this is the Mercedes, kings ride!! Could you believe that?!, then my small brother drove it for one week (I was out the state) he called me that the car heat goes above 110įc, again I called my mechanic ďking oneĒ , he said water pump is gone, noooooooooooooooooooooo!! ($ 100 cost), no comment. OK that is enough and forgets about $ 5, 10 for small jobs.

Could anyone imagine my car price, mmm Ö. I thing no one will even came near, itís $ 11600, I swear a god thatís right, but to clear your surprise, now in Sudan if you want to buy MB C-class 2012 they are going to screw you by at least $250,000, and you could get it in Europe by less than $ 100,000.

whatever, I still like my ride (nobody will drive it, except me, even my big mouth brother).Wherever I go, people start asking meĒ is it for sell?Ē even fuel station boy, so, I started to feel as a king.
Soon Iíll post some photos Ö pls wait.
To be continued...
My best regards
Abanoosi

Ok, that is right, but now he is going to be the rented mule, cause he'll drive his legs .
