Who has owned the most Mercedes?

Not sure If this thread has been done before or not but here goes.. This should be interesting to find out. Who here has owned the most Mercedes fine automobiles? I'm sure that I am not he but here is my list:
75-300D, 76-450 SLC, 80-300D, 82-300SD, 67-200E,
72-280C, 90-300SEL, 82-300D Turbo, 90-300E

9 Total

I guess there should be some guidelines...Listed vehiles should be those owned for personal use...(your momma's don't count for you but rather for your mother) And for those of you who are hitched (southern slang for marriage) since the law see's you as one well I guess the government here on the Mercedesshop will too......

* Maybe we could have a prize for whoever has owned the most!!!

You can put me far down the list for merely owning the four listed in my signature. Then again, I've only owned these cars for the previous seven years. Four Benzes in seven years. I'm sick... and loving it!!

A few days ago I used my sister's house as the backdrop to take some photos of my E-320. All she had to say was that four months since my last girlfriend is officially enough. "You need a girlfriend!!", she yelled.

How 'bout also seeing who's owned the most at one time?

I have an uncle living in Mexico City that owns like 14 Mercedes, 1 Triumph and 1 Fiat.

He is not a member of this forum but next time I meet him I will ask him to sign. Don't even know how are his english skills...

His cars are not newer models, most of them are from the 60's, 70's and early 80's, but he keep them in pristine condition.

About twenty years ago he owned a SL gullwing for a couple of months, then another collector made him an offer he was not able to refuse and sold it.

I will ask him to give me a list that I can post later with more information about his cars.

Boy, I feel like a babe in the woods now...

I've only owned one Benz so far. However, I've owned a total of 4 diesels (including the two I've got now; out of a total of 6 vehicles), and have owned oilburners exclusively for over 75% of the time I've been driving.
