To join the club

Ok, guys I am breaking, so I decided to get a POS car like yours. Here it is and i have just put a bid on it, what do you all think, should I push my upper limit a little higher just in case this auction goes insane?

Jeez man, don't buy a Benz. Nothing but problems, get yourself an American car, preferably a GM.

GM, I'd say that's the one "Benz" which might actually be right for you.

Good luck with the auction.

Sincere as hell,
Marsden

It was better as a LeBaron.

That 2.5L turbo isn't a bad engine for power.

Oh, I wasn't being mean or sassy, I do think it was better as an honest mode of transportation, not some kind of amalgamation of VERY contradictory ideas/styles and means of construction.

I've always liked LeBarons- my mom had this one that would talk, it had this beautiful tufted burgundy leather interior and a matching landau roof. Was a great little car, Had a cousin that had an 88 2.5 turbo convertible that he just loved.

I like the sebring as well, but it seems a little too big, I've never cared how the cloud cars drove, especially the 95-99 models

The Sebring GTC model with the chrysler 2.7 and 5 speed manual really interested me, but was priced too high to be powered by an engine that can up and die at aany moment due to oil starvation.
