Yes, thanks for the post Bill. The fate of Mercedesshop is certainly up the air now.

RE: MB Autowerks CLOSED

***************** existed before there ever was an MBAutowerks. And yes, Bill and Donnie own both. My guess is that ***************** will continue one way or the other. Another member has suggested that we buy it from them if they don't want to continue. I like that idea.

RE: MB Autowerks CLOSED

Well I'm sure Bill would not have imagined MB Autowerks closing either. We'll see what happens.
