Every landlords dream, a tenant who pays on time every time and puts no wear and tear on the property.....

Seriously interesting story though. It would have made a nice pocket museum.
Diesel loving autocrossing grandpa Architect. 95 e300 diesel being parted out, 03 Dodge 3/4 ton with Cummins& six speed; I have had about 35 benzes. I am finishing a 39 Studebaker Coupe Express pickup in which I have had installed a 617 turbo and a five speed manual....I also have a 65 Pontiac Bonneville with tri power and 8 lug wheels and a Lotus 7 replica autocrosser with a modified K20 Acura engine.

I did that for a year on my last mobilization since I was too lazy to move my stuff in and out of storage and didn't want to live in the Motel 6 while hunting for an apartment upon my return.
Anyone who thinks a 300D is fast drives too slow.
