My dad always told me to go for the older woman as you get a cup of tea afterwards

Nice job my friend but just curious, how fast did you hit? On my w126 560SEC, I hit 142mph on hwy 75 south. It was like 3 AM and no cops around that time since my brother was ahead of me for a mile to check for cops. Oh my... It was fun but I know it can go higher but being that old of a car, I rather not go faster than that till I finish the rest of the minor maintenance regarding the front end.

I'm pretty sure she was grateful. She said so anyway and served me breakfast in bed!

Thanks man. For some reason, since I was a kid, I had my mind set on getting one as my first car and guess what ???? I did and it is that black beauty. Oh btw, I'm only 21 but a 21 year old who has respected and admired Mercedes Benz ever since I was 6 years old. Believe me, I am not rough on this baby but sometimes it's tempting to push the pedal to the metal (-;
Anyways, nice silver arrow r129. I love those cars and rarity. Don't let that car go, it's a keeper.

560SEC BenzMan SL600...Thanks! She is a keeper. I was leaning towards a SL600 like my brother's but I think I'm just fine with my SL500 Silver Arrow!
