Three Cars in Three Days: A New Personal Best!

Hello All,
What a week. I somehow ended up buying three MBs in three days from three completely different sources. I have most certainly lost my mind. And quite possibly my home when I am found out by the powers that be.
On Wed morning I picked up a totally rusted out 1979 Euro W123 gasser w/ gorgeous interior (PM w/ parts requests if you need anything). Wed afternoon I talked the local thruway towing company out of a 1990 190E 2.6 (auto ) that had been abandoned by some little rich kid. For a C note ( ) I got the car (droppped off at my house no less!), two tuxes, a virtual gameboy, a computer printer, and all manner of other debris that a rich kid can accumulate in his car. Pic of the car below. A couple of quarts of oil and a fresh battery and she fired right off! Possible bad spring or totalled shock in the left front and one hole in the drivers seat, but otherwise nice. No title yet, but hopefully one can be procurred as it is way too nice to strip.
Then Friday I bought "Betty", a beautiful 1983 300TD (same color as my first MB wagon; navy over palomino) for a song. All she's missing is the front and rear seat carpeting. Just have to get out to Boston to pick her up.
Anyone have any contact info for some kind of Mercedes "AA". I am begining to run out of space in my signature.
What's y'alls record for car purchases in a short time?

Cheers,
-M-

In this circumstance some sort of buyer's remorse is likely at some point. If the trend continues counseling may be advisable.

There will be no buyers remorse here! All were purchased (combined) for not much more than I spend a year on insurance on just my 300E!
Besides, I needed a new project until I can get my 5spd conversion under way.

Only one (the euro) is a junk car that I purchased for some parts for an on going project and then will be junked after I let the vultures here pick her bones. The 2.6 is in perfect shape and, once the title is worked out, will replace my 2.3 that has just died. "Betty" is also in fine shape and will be a great driver while my 300E is off the road and going through her manual conversion/rear suspension rebuild later this summer.

Where'd all the fun people go.....

Cheers,
-M-
