Congrats and welcome.

Which attorney? One of his defense team or one of his co-conspirators?

Good luck with the car.

I was very exited about MB Patrick Swayze drove in "Road house"
It was 2 door, but could never figure out if that was consider W126 ?
Those never come to US with diesels, so that was end of the story for me.
500 sounds exiting, but I assume it will drain the wallet at gas station.
Waiting for pictures as well.

But the 4-track is bulletproof and you can buy tapes for next to nothing.

I have to give it to you, Kajtek, you're definitely good for a laugh or two here and there.

I'd be excited too with such a car. Excited enough to post pics and yummy details.

So ...

Notice the OP didn't say he was excited, he said he was exited. So, I guess that means he's gone.
