1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE

This is Battle Wagon V2.0. We picked it up this week because Rhonda's Honda Fit got clobbered in a traffic incident (Not her fault.) and after we find a good long-term replacement for her, the Merc will become my other-than-miata car.

It's got 106,000 miles and everything works on it. There are some visual blemishes, but it's straight and everything works. As advertised, the car has great road manners and provides the smoothest ride I've experienced in a while. Best of all, it was pretty cheap.
