I gave mine a discreet caress as I walked past her in the garage...

If it doesn't fit, force it.
If it breaks, it needed replacing anyhow.

Yup, it sure is hot!

I took my 560sl to work today. I'm a part time ranger on a local golf course. When I left work to return home, the outside temp guage read 110 deg. Now, even if it was 10 deg off, it still was damn hot! I use the car almost daily. The more it runs, the better it goes. now with 131,000 miles, it still amazes me!

It looks like I ingested a bowling ball. Those jeans are on the way out, almost as quickly as they came, BTW. Far too baggy.

More to the point, yesterday it was in the upper 90's so I was wearing... You know, seersucker jacket, light colored chino's, blue oxford cloth button down, loafers with no tassles. Looked rich?

I just bought my all time dream car. A 1989 560SL silver smoke with only 60,000 miles! I drove it to the shop today to have the AC repaired. I have been planning on buying this car for 3 years, and I have already had it looked over by a local MB guy.
Anyway, I made the deal last week, and have been nervous about it since. I drove it to Tybee Island in the spring, and was very satisfied, but this morning, it was about 65 degrees, and the car was actually mine! I looked like a mule eating briars!
When I got to the shop, the mechanics and a couple of customers came out to ooh and aah at her. I now feel a lot better about pulling the trigger, and I can't wait to get back in the seat!
