New casualty of declining dollar: Used Mercedes heading overseas?
In one of the oddest turnarounds, I have read several reports that used Mercedes-Benzes are being bought up and shipped back to Europe, and they aren't even stolen this time! Seems the decline in the buck makes profits possible for the Europeans. I have noted a decline in the number of SL's for sale on ebay, and when one looks at the user profiles of the high bidders, they sure look like overseas dealers to me. So get one before they are all gone!
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
