I have come to the conclusion if someone does not use proper grammar, I wont post an answer even if it is a simple reply.
There are foreign posters who try and do a better job than our domestic idiots.
I have abandoned forums for such abuses. Why do we need to discuss how big the wheels, how much you can lower, and how big the speakers. The next question would be how the get a MB to bounce around and put pom poms in the windows.

Are you aware that no comma is needed with a dependent clause such as in your first sentence? I am also concerned that your attempted use of contractions without the apostrophe may possibly bring one to accuse you of misspelling the "wont," portion of your rant.

A contraction is a word or phrase that's (or that has) been shortened by dropping one or more letters. In writing, an apostrophe takes the place of the missing letters.

IMHO, pom poms look fine in a Benz if the cheerleader wants to bring them along.

Sincerely,

Slow day at the office? I know that is not a complete sentence.

Roy, mine is a long story of backwoods, redneck hickism. I was born in Rockwood, TN to 17 yr old parents. Dad became a truck driver owing his qualifications to his 6th grade education. My great-grandmother taught me how to read at age 4. I have no clue as to where she learned to read but she did well with The Dick and Jane readers. I learned to memorize the spelling of words from her rather than the phonetical methods taught to my children by their Nebraska born and raised mother.

As hard as I try I can't spell words that I haven't memorized but I'v got it narrowed down to vowels so my spell checker can point me in the right direction.

Those who think spelling is relative to intelligence offend me but the guy had a good point about comprehensibility of a composition. The technical write-ups here are astounding. Your work in gathering and arranging the material is superb. I have only one issue with the DYI articles, they have led me to my real problem.

Is there such a thing as a automobile-hypochondriac?

Yes and no.

If you are keeping - driving the vehicle, and set a reasonable budget you can afford (and stick to it) = not for most people.
Note: There are many Happy owners/members driving a 240D - 300D with $28,000.00 total restoration cost, they consider what comparable car you can buy for that money today.


If you plan to sell it and recover all the money put into it, yes.
Could I ever recover what I've spent?


If the car is truly special/rare pre-war or a valuable collector, different rules apply.
