The reference to the 500E was just my inner self talking. That's my current all around (general purpose?) favorite. I have seven cars and although some of them are faster, some handle better, and some have a more classic look, none is better balanced than a 500E. There's no way pop will go for an "old" car like a '92-94. He hasn't bought a used car since the '50's so the fact that I've talked him into a 1996 or newer qualifies me for politician status. Thanks for your input though. It just reinforces my conviction about the 500E (and the E55). May just have to sell off the Shelby, or the Mach 1, or the GTA conv. and get one!!!
Will be checking out an E420 this weekend. Thanks for the input.
