wow that's alot of miles, so has it cost you alot of money to keep up?

don't forget...when you sell your benz, rip off the hood prize and wear it as a necklace to complete your newfound wardrobe

I have those already; they were my neighbors right out off their 600s
Technically a Benz can go a long way in terms of miles but you need to keep up with the maintenance. I would say for all the money I spent on mine I would have gotten a C class like yours.

yah paying for a car in cash is THE best thing to do, I agree! that would be a good goal for me.

lol nice..

yah what kind of car do you drive?

and...do people still (in general) still look at my car as "nice" being it's a 98 (older style)

ya know I wish I had an old diesel sometimes just because I like that old classic look of the benz..but my year is in between old & new so I was just wondering about that.
I still get compliments, but just curious on that.

I have the w126 body, it's a 1989 560sel, black. The only thing not working on it right now is the sunroof which is jammed shut. I just finished repairing the brakes and suspension yesterday and the car is as smooth as coco butter being applied on my wife's back, oh she gets to to drive it mostly, I am stuck driving a car (rx7) that I had since college ;(

Don't get the RR Sport. Overpriced for what it's supposed to be and be able to do.
