Just realized I'm a Benz fan
Hey everyone, just realized I never intro'd myself.
Well after looking around for a new toy, I finally realized at 26 that I'm a Benz guy. Before this I owned an '03 Eclipse Spyder and got out all my stupid kid driving (Don't worry, nothing that bad). It was a very fun car, but eventually I got sick of the rough ride, cramped quarters, and cheap fit and finish.
Around the time I got rid of the Eclipse, I adopted the family '03 Honda Accord. It's practical, reliable, effecient, and I JUST CAN'T STAND IT!
So I just bought a '77 450SL. It's definitely what I'm all about. Smooth ride and style. Originally I wanted an MG, but after testing them I realized I didn't wan't to manage NYC highways with such a tiny car.
I'm so thrilled with the 450SL, that now I'm considering ditching the Honda Discord as my standby practical ride, and finding an MB for that purpose...any thoughts on the best 70's to early 90's MB for comfortable ride, AC reliability, and quiet at highway speeds? I find I can't take my eyes off the SEC, but maybe that's not so practical.
