Another new meember from Seattle

Hey All,

I have always loved Mercedes-Benz cars. I've owned a few in the past that I have parted with; and one that my wife drivers. Her C230 and I do not get along, but we do our best to co-exist. I am in the process of convincing her to sell the C230 and replace it with a 1996-7 S600 Coupe. (I think I'm winning her over, but time will tell).

Past cars:
1988 300CE - (Only one I have a pic of).
1988 300TE - For work, but did not have AWD, hence the change to a Volvo V70R
1982 300D - Great Daily driver, not slow...
1982 240D - First Merc, and was inherited from family.

I currently own a 2000 Volvo V70R, which I am in the process of converting into a monster. New engine with 450+ AWHP (525+ at crank), A Manual 6 speed gearbox (from the 5 speed Auto). and maintaining the AWD system. But I degrees, this is not a Volvo form after all.

I look forward to interacting with you all.


1999 CL600 - My new project
1997 C230 - Wife's Current Driver
2000 V70R - Volvo. My Current Work Car. 475+ AWHP, 6Speed Manual Swap
1988 300TE - My old Work Car. SOLD
1988 300CE - My old Driver. SOLD
1982 300D - SOLD
1982 240D - SOLD

Hi Jason

I'm also from Seattle Wa. area and have joined the forum here.
The C class cars offer a lot for that segment. Love the C32's.
Interesting choice regarding an S class coupe, consider a CL55 if you're looking to go big also.
Hope you have a great New Years!
