Hi Penn, I just went through the situation you describe in looking at new cars. My wife wanted an Acura and that about settled the deal; but I still did my dilegence yada... I loked at a GM and Ford and was amazed at the foreign content stickers posted on or with the Window Price sticker! After driving some of them; the Ford 500, the Impala (looks just like a Taurus) a Buick and a Linclon Zephyr, I went to BMW too expensive and has rear wheel drive the silly guy said buying a BIMMER is like ordering a steak at fine resturant, everything is alacarte. Drove Lexus just big Toyota Avalon and went to Acura and bought the car Mrs. Paul wanted in first place, it is sweet! As to roadsters, my wife had a Triumph TR4 in college, Brit racing green /c tan leather interior. We loved the car but the electrical system bu Lucuas gave us fits. Enjoy your new MB! Creper
Oh yes the famous Lucas Electrical System...remember it well. Had a 62 MGB that I use to drive to work. Hit a bump and the lights would go off, hit another and they came back on. Never could find the porblem. Must have been haunted.
Creper, Again, thanks for the suggestions and concerns. We have been through numerous counseling sessions with her and she on her own. All has been discussed from self-esteem problems to depression. All involved came to the conclusion that she has been allowed to be lazy. As someone has stated here, we have been told to stop giving and start demanding. I am beginning to believe the 12 step program may be the way to go. It is about 12 steps from the front door to the curb.
Penn, You will be sad if anything ontoward happene to her; on the other hand she may see the situation more clearly with a little more time. It has been my humble experience that chronological age and overall maturity are not synonymous! All the best, Creper
