Greetings all!

So here's my little introduction, and testament to the finest cars any man can afford.

My name is Frank, I live in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. I'm 24 years of age, and have a wife and step daughter that mean everything to me. I live a modest life, work a crappy, dead end job that I put entirely too much effort into, and I'm as happy as a clam! Maybe I've been living in this heat too long...

My first car EVER was a '94 Volvo 850 wagon. <--By choice
My first Benz was an '86 420SEL <--By total providence, R.I.P. baby...
My current Benz is a '90 300E <--Cause I was sick of driving CRAP after I scrapped the 420...

My love affair with MB autos started when I needed a car badly and my best friend sold me his 420SEL around 2008 for $600. Total sacrifice/act of love on his part. It was in really great shape and easily worth 4X that much at that point. I fell in love with everything about it, the style, the comfort, the ease of ownership, the gravel I could spit out of the rear wheels, drifting through lightly snow covered parking lots... (I lived in WA during this time..)

Then the economic crap really hit the fan and I lost nearly everything I had and ended up living in it for a while. I eventually had to sell it as scrap because I had neglected it to such an extent that it was unsafe to drive any longer, and I've never forgiven myself...

Anyhoo, I'm back on track, got me another Benz, and I swear to maintain this one better than my last. Hope you all can help me along the way.
