What is wrong with us????

Or must I ask, what is wrong with the others?

Why do we love our rides so much? What is it about the three pointed star that attract us so much?
I thought it was just me, but reading the comments in this forum, I discovered that everybody love their cars. I can't wait to go home in South Africa, knowing my wife is waiting at the airport for me, with the SLK.
Here in South Africa, a lot of younger guys say that they are to young to buy a Mercedes Benz. That is why they drive Audi's and BMW's. I loved MB since I was a youngster and still loving it.
Like to hear your thoughts...................................

Hi Ian SLK

May be 10 years ago the MB brand could have seen to be for the older person , But with the new models like SLS ,The new A class etc , The Smart cars & All the AMG versions of the MB models its does bring a younger ownership . Anyway if your friends like most of mine have poor taste its not our problem LOLz .

Cheers

Andy

It's always been one of the Pinnacle vehicles... you drive an MB and you have made it....
but they are also amazing pieces of machinery too...
I loved my Merc for what it represents but now i love as a great car

Spelling, yet again.

I've been in love with the brand since I had a 1974 280CE. I got it when it was about 12 years old. Nothing really luxurious about it, no electric windows, vinyl seat covers, no air con, but a very very special car.

I feel the same about my SLK and not because of the luxury, but because of the wind-in-the-hair fun.

If it's an SLK, it's beautiful ...R172....with a nice pair of headlights, and sexy rear end, who's looking at the nose..
