I am now 42. Bought my first Mercedes 3 years ago. It is a 1971 280SEL. I am now forced to drive it daily for work. I don't like to do that, but my wife's newer car is down with a bad tranny, don't have the $ to fix it right now. However, driving my 280 every day has really made me appreciate it that much more. I drive about 40 miles round trip every day and my engine needs a serious rebuild. But it gets me to work every day and back home again, without fail. Plus, it's great just for the ego boost, I get great comments almost every day, what a perk.
