Thanks for your supportive comments on my old road warrior. I usually have no interest in haggling with car dealers... so my last 5-6 cars were donated to assorted charities to try and help them. I however will never donate to the American Humane Society again. Their program all but gives your car away at the auction, the auction takes a cut and the charity does not get much. My car had a book of $2700, but was sold for $500. My tax deduction got ripped.
I love my SLK 6 cyl, but it spends more time under its blanket than on the road. BUMMER. My retirement toy..... as you can guess. Rich (rjoeh)
