r.o.u.s. perhaps? I'm really not sure... the 123 looks like it carries the weight well though!

Hey! When did you take a picture of my car!



That could be Minneapolis, but the picture is not recent as there is not 3 feet of snow. Even though the license plates are blurry, the look the MN standard plates.

That's called a "Union Rat", look it up. I see them frequently here on the Island used by mob-backed construction unions protesting scab labor.

I saw that guy on the 35W about a month ago. Passed him in my orange 300TD. His car is somewhat of an aerodynamic hazard. The wolf thing on his roof looks pretty cool, but I'm not sure what it's all about. An art car?

I wonder if that guy knows what it's all about...?

I have yet to spot him. I guess I'm in Minneapolis proper more so during the winter months. Although I have seen tons of Mercedes diesels in the last two months. Probably 10-20! I know for some of you that is how many you see in a day but they are rare around these parts.

I rarely see wagons.

There was a super nice 300D parked on Lake Harriet Pkwy (near the bandstand) the other day.
