Tracy, I think that you are on to something here when you write about enjoying the individuality of an older Benz. Heck, anyone can drive a super-glossy, shiny Benz. All you need is the price of "admission."
On the other hand, it takes real character to drive a car with a few external flaws.
If I keep telling myself that, I may end up saving a few thousand bucks...
