Well my Dad bought this car after The Silver Rabbit died, because he had always wanted a Mercedes. Shortly afterward his eyes got bad enough that he gave up driving, so it has become a spare car that just sits in the driveway waiting for me to brake &/or take apart my other cars, so that I am forced to use it. When we got it, it was a nice car, & I actually drove it for about 6 months twice, but it's life of sitting is catching up with it. Since it is now a spare car, it is not properly maintained & needs a decent amount of work. Oh well.
