      Yeah guys, I don't know if you noticed, but I had bikes on it. To, you know, ride around Leavenworth. The show took up the whole town and I didnt feel like walking all day. The rack isn't on the car now. I happen to love the way racks look on cars, they also show me who has a common interest in biking, and I got that Yakima rack with 4 bike rails, deflector, and a kayak attachment for $20! I love racks! And I don't see a valid reason not to. Unless we're talking about those kids that throw them on for no reason..... different story.

      As for the low, it's not bad at all. There are aome crazy parking lot entrances I have to avoid but it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

      The interior is a project, it looks better now.... It wasnt too clean in the pics, but with a new steering wheel and seats she'll be just fine.

      The Benz is still good, gets driven a couple times a week, sleeps in the garage.

      It'll be torn down to repair a small amount of rust and other minor issues, but for now it's still so good I don't have the heart to start.

      How did I miss this thread the first time around.

      That car is amazing! I love it.

      Did you get the 4th gear issue resolved?

      Lately though, they show ME who has a common interest in putting bike racks on their car for no reason lol.

      Love the car though.
