hello from western nc

hi my name is billy and i hail from the beautiful blue ridge mountains of wnc. i have visited this site many time but only today i registered. just lazy i guess! i presently own a 1994 e320 and previously a 92 190e. i wish i could afford a newer one but thats just not in my budget. until the last couple of years i was a japanese import kind of guy. i like all muscle cars, shucks , i like them all! i presently also own a 1981 corvette and a 1991 caprice station wagon , complete with spinners ant tribal flames on it. its my truck, (i can haul a 4x8 sheet of plywood, flat.), it has been my minivan(i can haul 8 people, with the jumpseat in the back) and my tow vehicle to drag boat and camping supplies to the lake. this was my daily driver until i bought the benz.or bought it back, should i say?
i initially bought the 320 about 6 mos ago and it needed a little bit of work done to it. i had all the intent to fix it but never did. i already had one project i was trying to finish. so there it sat. and sat. a good friend of mine saw it , wanted it , and so i sold it to him for close to what i paid for the car.fast forward 1 month. he fixed almost everything on the car , several hundred dollars worth. and he put on a new set of tires too.and had it buffed and detailed. it looked great and i immediately regretted selling it.a week later he finds a new plaything. offers me the 320 back at a premium. i wanted it but it was just financially feasible. 2 days pass, i get a text, its from him, offers me back my car for 100.00 less than what i sold it to him for. i couldnt refuse! back home she came!. she runs fantastic, like a benz should! i refer to this purchase as a "reverse nigerian buyback." just happy to have her home!
thank you for taking the time to read . here are some pix of my babies.
