What your Benz says about you

Ok I'll start, others add.

240D: I don't care much about being passed on the freeway by mopeds and cyclists. I crave ultimate reliability as well as economy. I am extremely practical. I also get a slight ego boost from driving a Mercedes


Continue....feel free to make your own....what do you others think your Mercedes says about you?

I think it says that I have an appreciation for something (in this case a car) that is well built, safe, and gives me a lot of joy!

380SE: Who cares if it goes 0-60 in 10 seconds and maxes at 120 mph, I still have a turbine-smooth Mercedes V-8; one of the smallest V-8 engines ever to grace the highway in modern times. Plus, it's one of the most cost-effective ways to get into the W126 body style without hearing "klattaklattaklatta" from under the hood.

"klattaklattaklatta" is an MB's way of saying "you da man!"

There seems to be a continuing thing between Sam and me. I can hear him singing, "Anything 5 can do 8 can do better..."

1980 450sl. With the top down, it really speaks volumes, but I don't care what others think...they're all just jealous!!

Let it be known that if you ever find someone with a 300SDL in good shape who's willing to swap it for a well-kept old turbocharged Volvo, I'm game. I like even numbers of cylinders.

Mine says I like something luxurious, but at the same time, sporty and elegant.

It also say watch out to the ladies, cause I'm a Ladies man.

I think it says that I'm a spoiled young yuppie. To most people anyway!

I would like to think it says that I appreciate fine automotive engineering, have great taste, care about quality & build, and sure, prestige. Sure it also says that I'm financially stable (I'm not - parents!).

Mine says I am flashy and flamboyant, an attention getter at every turn. There's nothing I love better than to cruise through town with the top down, the wind breezing through my hair.

IT may be from shaft originally. But I get it from The Movie "The Ladies Man" which has been on the satellite alot lately. I think its a hilarious movie.

My 380SL says to me, "I sure wish that you would take me out of the driveway more than once every couple of weeks.?

Do you mean in a roadster or ala Lady Godiva?
