Hmmmm.....I thought it was a 560SL because he said it was a 1986, and I was unaware of any other US SL cars in 86 that were anything but 560's read below what he originally said:

It's not the Caddy.....
Either way, its true, I have my Marauder thats brand and I never drive it, my neighbors think I'm crazy, walk out in a suit every day and jump in Rag Doll and go to work while the "nice car" sits in the garage....once she gets paint it'll be different!

Does having a new VW toureag with all kinds of electronic upgrades count for a mid-life crisis? Cuz my dad has to be having one with all the crazy upgrades he has done to that car. It started with the clarion touch screen head unit with the dvd player, then it was tv's behind the headrest and now a playstation 2 under each seat for each tv and he said he wants to put 20in wheels on the toureag

He already has his muscle cars the 64 stang convertible and the 66 stang hardtop so im guessing he is having his mid-life crisis with the VW.
