I thought I had an owner thread, guess not.

1994 e500, 199 exterior, tan interior. I bought it from a former forum member in Houston 12/2009, brought it back to California, and within a few months I was t-boned by new teenage driver who ran a stop sign 2 blocks from my home. Car got salvage title, but I did get it fixed up since the frame was not bent. Now my daily driver. This happened in 2010. ~160k miles as of this post!

Thank you thank you thank you Captruff for helping me achieve something most people won't see everyday :cheers1:

Looks great! Love the roof rack. 160kmi... dang, didn't you buy it with more like 100k? Nice to see it being driven!

PS: You should add some Mojave pics to your new Owner thread. :)

Thanks all :) That sexy rack is an official MB rack! So excited, it fits nicely, and Captruff had done a sweet paintjob on it with 040.. so it looks a tad off against the 199, but, doesn't matter to me since I'm using this quite a bit.

Dave: I bought the car with 92k miles. Also, I have the DVD you sent with all the photos from our mojave mile runs, but never got around to uploading all of them to the internet :( Only a few. Here are a couple.
