Wow, I was avoiding this thread because I thought I'd stand out for being such a newbie.

Got the 84 300D July 1, 2008 (Atlanta)

I've had my 300SD since July 2003....6.5 very expensive years ago.

300E I have had just over a year.

Both are awesome


All the others in my sig were added in: August 2004: Dad's '83 300SD, January 2006: Brother's 300D, May 2008: Dad's '82 300SD, October 2009: Sister's 190E 2.3, November 2009: Parts car 300SD

We seem to be adding almost one a year! This could become a problem....
