Nice ones! C-class looks in a great nick, not too many of them left around - a young timer classic :D
Thanks. The C280 is my daily driver with 190k. I just repainted it in my garage. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it came out. A pretty car is much more fun to drive. The 560 is still a work in progress. It has many leaks that I am slowly finding and repairing. I have done a lot of HVAC work, but it still needs much more. I long for the day when I get everything functional.

Here is a pic of my '87 560sl that I recently purchased. I have 33 years of service history, just replaced the remainder of the suspension (shocks, struts, steering bushings). Car has 204,000 miles and is my daily driver. My mechanic was shocked when he got up under the car seeing that virtually EVERYTHING was brand new. Engine was rebuilt about 50k miles ago, which was nice to hear and see in writing and receipts. The previous owner certainly took excellent care of the car and it showed. Powder coating the wheels and ordering some coco mats for the interior and just going to have it be my golf course, grocery getter for the foreseeable future.
