It's not you, it's me

After 3.5 years of bliss, it's time to move on. I will be dropping the W115 off in Hamilton tomorrow morning.
The stereo has been removed and the trunk cleaned out. My personal effects have been removed and the wheels have been changed to the buyer's choice, the stock wheels with hubcaps.
It's been a short, crazy ride and I enjoyed it all.

Did a three step wax today, polished all the chrome, degreased the engine bay and did a quick mockup on a gauge holder for the air gauges, just have to pick up some shet metal and borrow a pressbrake from a friend to do the final one. Also have talked to a friend that builds guitars for a living about restoring the wood trim and making a piece to match the dash for the gauge cluster. Setting the valve lash up tomorrow night. Couldn't be happier with the car, thanks Randy

I don't think you could have found a better owner. Looks like you have a restoration buddy when you start your 109. :)
Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...
