I inherited my Dad’s very nice late ‘80s Mercedes. At the time, I already had a 2000 Civic. The M-B is a fantastic car, and Dad kept it immaculate. Read more

Mostly unrelated, but that just reminded me of something my late Mom said once. She & Dad had retired to a well off retirement area in SW Florida. Sadly Dad fell into the hands of an incompetent doctor and died way too early. Read more
