My First MB by fate
My wife has a Jag, so I was looking to buy another. A "his and hers" sort of thing. Got the money from the Credit Union and went to buy a classic XJ6L I saw advertised at a dealer. Only 203 of that model made and this one looked mint.
The car wasn't the one pictured. It looked like it had been abandoned in a farmer's field for decades.
So here I was with cash for a car and the wife's blessing to get one. I wasn't about to return the money and I'm very particular about the cars I want.
Another dealer had a 2001 E320 that looked nice. I really liked the headlights because they reminded me of my dad's '64 Valiant. The front view of the car looked like it was smiling. There were other nice cars, but the E320 kinda spoke to me. Hours of negotiating price and needed repairs yielded the car to me.
I'll be checking out the W210 forum. Hopefully, I'll be able to add something there once I get some experience going.
