Apparently, you're supposed to buy the house FIRST .

Houses are $pendy tho', I never had problems buying old vehicles .

No one is suggesting you unload everything that gives you joy to work upon, just the too many that take the fun out of it .

I'm sitting here looking out the window at a battered survivor 1959 VW I blew the engine in 5 years ago ~ I sold/gave away other cars to get my mojo back and let me tell you, it's fun again .

Three is definitely my limit. And staggering oil changes is a big help. They are incredibly easy on the 126's too so that helps.

I put one of those Fumoto valves on the sump of my 420se. Since I've unlowered that car that days, I don't even need a jack now to change the oil. Just slide the oil drain container underneath and open the drain tap.

I've become quite adept at sliding on my back and draining the oil on my W123's using just a short 13MM box end wrench .

I imagine lowered vehicles cannot do this .

I like to keep my concrete driveway clean and swept so I'm laying on clean concrete .
