No objectophilia references from Jimmy tonight?

Perhaps a W115 is too old for you.

Objectophilia is a sexual and romantic obsession with any certain inanimate object--

I had to Google it.

Yep, it would be nice in certain aspects of life to get younger at a given position... Part of me likes the W115, but I'm trying to work my way to a W124, not go in the other direction. If I want something old and tore up, well, uh, I guess I am something old and tore up!

Listen, I'm not the one that mentioned that my backseat might have been "tainted".......

The memory foam enhancement I made sure made things firmer, yet comfortable. No, the nastiest thing to grace my MB-Tex was vomit shortly before my second trip to Texas. I still have not talked to that girl since her apology dinner.

I like green MBs, but I don't know about this one. I usually need a "metallic" type of green to appreciate it fully.

My Grandparents had a late 60's vintage Buick that color. I think they called it Mint Green. My brother an I called it the "uglymobile". Either way, that color is not for me...JimmyL on the other hand...

I would never be caught dead in something like that. If I had to, I'd sandpaper the entire car down and paint it with paint cans from Home Depot.

My indy has one that color with a good engine, but the floors are rusting away. I was going to buy it from him, then I saw the floors...too bad, I like that color better than the powder puff blue one that I bought.
