Introducing "Gunther"

Just took ownership of this one owner '88 560sl California car with 76,600 miles. 16" Lorinser chrome wheels, service records from 1989 to present, minor body dings here and there, original paint. Runs great, needs some cosmetic TLC. Will be stable mate for "Strudel". Wife didn't even get pissed.

She told me to put new tires on if I want! She is a rare one.

hmmm. I'd be a little suspicious. My bet is that she is going to hit you up for something she wants now that you got Gunther. Diamonds, clothes, vacation?

Got one just like Gunter. '88 with 76k miles and was a california car till I bought her 3 years ago. Black with palomino interior. Still looking great with a deep shine.

You can't buy happiness but you can buy a 107... and that's kind of the same thing. Remember that your car is supposed to be your therapy, not the reason you need therapy.
