Smile Another MB Lover

Hi, I just got my 3rd Benz. Just an oldie, but I am of thought, better an old Benz than a new "whatever". I had a 86 420 with 150000 on it. I loved it but my daughter kept worrying about it. (It had a leak in the fuel injector) So it took 3 turnovers to pump it up. Didn't bother me, but everyone else freaked out. Christmas, my daughter bought me a replacement. A 95 C280 with 85000 on it. She couldn't understand my hating to part with my old one, even with the shiny "like new" one to replace it. She mistook the reluctance as a rejection of her gift. I meant it pretty much like a mother having the second child. What the heck, you know what I mean. Right? So I am enjoying, at any rate, my newer, fast starting Benz.
