i dont understand owl?
i think the wording is quite good, giving a good upmarket classy feeling about slk's.
are you suggesting they are getting tired and need a refresh?
something like...
kick ass
hardcore
jaw splitting
slk world, the place to be seen

haha nice n4. But i think he means that for other people surfin our site, it may not fit them and they may be like, screw those snooty people. But at the same time owl, why worry about those people who dont have an slk, or planning on getting one, and coming on this forum just to flame?

He may be refering to my posts which are meant to amuse not annoy. I hope none of you resent my play on words and humor. I am capable of speaking and writing with all the expertise of a professor but I love to laugh and make others grin. Snooty people annoy me and I avoid them. Earning a Phd an MBA plus two BS and two AS degrees has not gone to my head and I realize that people that I associate with appreciate me not being snooty to them and feeling superior. Life can be taken at any moment, enjoy it while you have it, I certainly do. Hey Ya''l check my post count now, Yee Haw Ya'll

my interpretation of what Gero is saying is that our cars are luxurious, refined, etc., but we are not acting that way.

Adolescent/ adultecent/ dang words, child phsycology/ sycology/ behavin, since I been one all my life I was able to breeze thru that bettern anything else. Written my next thesis now in criminal phsyc, I like all them nitials behind my name. One of my co-pilots had two lab coats made, mine has my name and all my nitials, his just says "Im with him" the laughs we get walkin in the hospital are crazy.

Doug, I like your style. You constantly make me with your posts. You're a welcomed addition to this forum. You're the most down to earth "over achiever" I've never met.

Peter,

I´ve seen some photos and I read words which should not belong to this forum.

I´m writing and reading from Germany. Others from China, Malaysia, France, just around the world. Men, women and kids.

The borderline from a joke to embarrassment, from a clown to a fool is very small. Everybody, me included, should keep an eye on ourselves not to destroy this great community. I do not like the ignore list, but since one week I am using it.

Scott, Bill, Woolly and others said what I thought in this ugly thread. And Kevin, his sence of humor I prefer.
