Ok, I got that silly dealership sticker off. It left a lot of adhesive behind that was being really stubborn about coming off, until I decided (on a hunch) to try rubbing the spot with car wax, it came right off then. You can't even tell it was there anymore.

Good to know yours is running well after all these years.  My wife's dream car (Grail?) is a 1979 Mercedes Benz 450 SL Convertible.  I've been concerned with the reliability and potential repair costs should we find one.

If she just wants that shape then the newer 380s are generally a little cheaper. If you want the best then the later 560s or a grey market 500 is better.

So that car is like a CRT monitor. Never gives you trouble, fires right up, and just perfect in every way.

Eh, it has a lot of old car problems that aren't worth the money to repair. I could totally dump $5000 into the thing tomorrow if I wanted to, but it still starts up, drives straight, and stops, so that is good enough. It is one of those cars that isn't really worth fixing up.

Top work Paige! I am ashamed to say I have abondoned the cheap and cheerful set and sold my Type 3 VW a couple of years ago when I bought a new Honda Fit. I still miss him sometimes. Was basically my daily driver for about ten years starting from about 3 months after I moved to this city.

Charging up the battery right now, lets hope she comes back to life again after her winter nap.

Fired right up once I charged the battery, but it has no brakes. Hopefully they just need bled.
