    500Eboard connections

    I know this is supposed to be a technical forum, but I wanted to thank everyone in our southwest part of the country for helping me purchase my new, to me, W140 CL600.

    Because I live on the East Coast, I needed help. Jeff, Glen, and Eric were all very much involved. Glen test drove the car, Jeff gave me sound, wise advice and let me park the car at his warehouse, and Eric hauled me around in his PERFECT G500.

    With the exception of Glen, we all had dinner last week before I had to get back to work.

    A big thank you to our southwest board members for helping a friend in need.

    Jeff has to be the best detailer in the world. I have never seen the type of eye candy I witnessed at his shop. Would love to work and learn how to detail under his instruction.

    Indeed....it's hard not to get a "woody" when you hang out at Jeff's Batcave. Same thing with Jono's shop.
