Happy Birthday guys!

Hey 68, where do I ship your present to? You'll know what it is the second you see it! I figured you could use one:

Thank You everyone.

Lack-of-B-Pillar day went great.

Drove my 500SEC with all four

windows down, for only the 3rd,

or the 4th time this year.

Spent time with my two girls,

since wife worked all day. Now

I'm off to Boston for a surprise.

(Lobster...? or maybe Filet Mignon?) :unsure::spin:

Happy Birthday! Enjoy your new toy. :P

Thanks, and thanks for helping me get it down

to Ass-hat-Chusetts by playing the chase car.

The Grinch 'Burban Sold for $1200 on Friday morning,

so I "reinvested" exactly half of it in a Diesel M-Benz.

Cool..another diesel Merc... there are still quite a few of them running around here in AZ. It seems like any W123 (even the coupes) I see is a diesel..

I hope it's at least a turbo (they're bad enough with all of that lag), Benz NA diesels are flat out painful to drive.

I rode in an '80s 300SD once, nice big comfy car, similar to 'my' 500SEL, but oh so slooooooooooow...felt slower than my 52 hp diesel Escort did, but the Escort felt 'peppier' since it was small and light.

The turbo lag in an '85 300TD I had to drive nearly got me killed at intersections.

Step on the pedal......wait......lunge!

Terrible car!

The seats may as well have been cinder blocks they were so hard.

One thing I didn't realize is those midsize W123 diesels were available w/ both 4 and 5 cyl diesels, in turbo and non turbo forms. Imagine if that had been a 220D (not sold in the US, AFAIK)--a 2.2 4 cyl diesel with a stonking 54hp! :)
