Please ignore this thread about Mercedes...

but I had a wonderful time tonight all on Mercedes' dime. Down at the Beach Club here in Pebble Beach Mercedes threw a hell of a dinner and party tonight. A Santa Fe native, Denise McCluggage,was there (look it up, hint Auto Week) as well as the head of Mercedes design, Peter Phiefer, were at my table. Train was the group in concert and they were fantastic in person in such a small setting surrounded by Maybach Landaulets, 500K's, and Gullwings. Fantastic evening and I thank Mercedes for being so generous. Wonderful, just wonderful.

I had the brisket, sausage and ribs at Juniors BBQ in Houston. Guess we don't travel in the same circle.

I also hate Mercedes so much that I feel they offer the best overall line up of cars available today. I've had more Mercedes than any other make (sans Cadillac).

No wonder you hate Mercedes, none of those is worth a shit, except for the R113...and, there are no diesel models in that rather paltry list. tsk tsk tsk, you have much to learn, grasshopper
