It seems like my 420 SEL, Olga, had just gotten to be a loved member of the family, disaster struck. A low-life squirrel sabotaged her with flammable materiel on the exhaust manifold, causing a fire that totaled her. After a 2 year fling with a svelte BMW convertible, I found passion again with Serilda, a 2003 S430. Looking like Olga's younger sister, dressed in champagne and tan, sitting behind the wheel brought back all those old familiar feelings. One turn of the key and I remembered what a joy that Mercedes v8 can bring. Cruising I-5, headed home with my new found flame just felt right. Welcome to the family.
