Thread: Super Gloat Time

  1. #1

    Super Gloat Time

    After 13 years of service and driving fun, it was time to let go of my 1995 M/B C280.

    This afternoon I took delivery on 2007 Mercedes Benz E320 Bluetec diesel. Here are a couple pictures. Yes, Tyler Howell, it did happen.

    A couple exterior shots.

    Interior from the passenger's side.

    Finally, the car and the 'fat boy'. Golly, I need to go on a diet.

    The exterior color is pewter with a black interior.

    The engine is a 208 hp, 3.2 liter, V-6, diesel that puts out 388 ft/lbs of torque. It is the first car I have had that will push you back in the seat when you put the pedal to the metal. EPA highway mileage is 37 mpg.

    With a little luck, this will be the last car I will need to buy....

    I dunno Ken...you're gonna have a hard time hauling much lumber in that rig. I don't even see a trailer hitch.

    Congrats on a sweet-looking car. My Lexus has a similar color scheme, and I like that combination a lot.

    Great looking car, but I think that you should start thinking about the car you are going to buy in 2019! Can't start too early!

    And why didn't you keep the old one, cut off the rear end and build a flat bed!
