    Definitely married but also dating. The Brilliant Silver car is with me forever but I will eventually part with the Pearl Black high miler.

    Nice little article. I liked the part about "Flipper" and also the part about fascination and infatuation.

    Currently I am married to my 500E. That is not to say that I will never part with it.

    Yes, I thought the “Flipper” portion of the article would resonate with many people here.

    My harem has consumed much in time, labor and parts.

    Haven't married any of them and drive the best one to fit the mission of the day rotating them throughout the month.

    However, my wife and kids have said they would bury me in one of them.

    Re: "Cars You Date .... Cars You Marry"

    Yeah... if I had any sense I’d have dated the Allroad, married the Benzes (500E and S55) and butt f*cked the E46M. Jokes. Alas, I’ve married them all. And the longer I’m with them, my faith in my own choice has grown. All of them are good picks, even if my standards are a bit high. Hence, no Italians, Japanese, Koreans or Americans.

    Nice article. Thanks, GVZ.

    Cheers,

    maw
