Random dude, random...

M'kay. Bought a new GLK350 today. It will be built May 25th. We will pick it up May 26th in Stuttgart (Euro delivery) and drive throughout Europe like we did in '00 with the new S class. Pluggerific is getting a new set of wheels needless to say (this one). Renting a villa in Tuscany for a week. We have never been to Florence. Ending up in Paris of course where we dump the car until we see it again in Dallas.

Here is a picture of Big David in the '85 all option Eldorado Biarritz at his shop for some resto. work. He is cute wouldn't you say? He's got game too. No this is not The Davey. Don't give me grief about the names or I'll throw Donald into the mix as well.

Still negotiating on mom's possible ML350. We'll see. So now I have two Mercedes again and possibly three if I buy the ML for mom. Get off my back already. Thanks.

Also I would like to say thanks to the chump in the new S550 (again!) for being my personal radar detector between Wichita Falls and Amarillo. Cruising 100mph is just about right. Mom didn't object either. Also special mention to the two teenage girls cruising 95mph in the '92 Sedan DeVille.

PS Tomorrow is my birthday.

The GLK looks like a bling-pimped Subaru Forester

^That seems about right. The Davey had his way. All I could think about is the coming depreciation. Ugh.
