Thumbs up W-123CD Tank

I'd like to add :

A rather stylish and remarkably fast tank .

Just wait'll I get off my duff and install an "M" code injection pump .

Running away from far more expensive and modern cars on thee twisy Pasadena Freeway or up The World Famous Angeles Crest Highway , makes me giggle .

Yes , that tatty old thing that blew by you going 85 + in a sharp , decreasing radius turn , was ME .

Compromise between need, budget, and my refusal to drive an appliance. I was considering several BMW E30's and E36's but once I found my baby and considered just how well she fit mine and my son's needs...4 door sedan, sporty, prestigious heritage, immediately unique (there aren't many C36's left on the road in Chicago) and you have me...and hopefully, in time, even though now its my prince's Chariot, it may even become his first car...

Bought my 2006 S500 because I wanted something comfortable, yet fast and good for everyday, but nice enough to take out on the weekends to somewhere nice

I had some reasons for buying MB cars. And then one day, the reflection on the hood told me that I made the right decision. Amen.

I bought a C220 a few years ago as a beater and grew to like it. My son rolled it, didnt even break the sunroof. I am impressed with the construction of the car and its safety traits, so I just bought an 03 C230 as a driver.
Reasons for buying a Benz:
1 Value - best bang for the buck $7.5k gets a top quality compact car
2 Green - its a gas sipper, gets 600km + to a tank of fuel
3 Appearance - its a good looking car, people think its new.
4 Safety - these cars are built like tanks
5 Fun to drive - a sports sedan - has alot of zip for a four banger
6 luxury - it has lots of goodies for its cost - the one i picked up has heated seats, leather, wheel pkg, split zone ac + lots more
7 It fits me - Im 6'3" (that does bug me about the new ones - I considered a new C250, but its too small)

Theres more but you get the drift - I am pleased with Benz. If I can afford it, I will always have one from now on.
