@#$%^#!!!! If I'd thought to check the forum one week earlier!!! Just started looking to find another in decent shape to have down here in Texas, and let my sister and her hubby keep the replacement '87 and wrecked parts car up in NC - the replacement '87 needed the dash pulled for a vacuum pod replacement, not something I'm equipped to do down here right now. And a car without A/C in Texas is undriveable.

Well I started to PM you last week, but got to thinking you would not want another tinker car. But what do I know, I am just a retired squid.

The guy that got the car is I am sure going to enjoy a lot of miles of motoring down the road, to be sure. Wish I still had by code reader to clear the code to turn off that ABS light, I never understood how MB could come up with the idea to use the ABS light for other things like low voltage to battery, and couple other things it lights up for besides the ABS. I mean how much more would it have cost to put in an idiot light as used on most cars???

Well the wife's little Ford Escort ZXR2 went 193 mile and used 9.2 gallons for 21 MPG in city. Her MB averaged 25/27 MPG depending on season.

Now that means we lost about 15% in cost of operation.

Man getting into that car from my Benz and driving the Ford is a trip. That is about the closest thing to my old '31 Ford Model A that I have ever driven for ride and noise levels, and the A I think had a better ride.

Just found the MB certificate for Mileage and badge award and if Dan see this if he would send email or PM with address I will send it to him.

On another note it was 17F this AM at 6:30 with 87% humidity outside.
