Dad's 300D

In 1978 Dad brought home a brand-new Mercedes 300D, magnolia yellow with "mbtex" faux leather interior. I remember my friend Steve jumping in when he brought it home and saying "wow! leather and stick shift!" ...Both wrong, but dad didn't correct him.

I still drive that car and will always have it. It's got 178,000 miles and is nearly perfect. I love it and sold my Porsche and Audi, they don't compare.
