Ding ding ding. Sloppy seconds as female colleague got an opportunity to go to Germany instead.

Isn't there a Joe's garage or the equivalent.  I can't stomach even getting close to a dealer service department. Merc is particularly shitty

For parts purchases, the local Benz dealership was awesome for me.

It won't be worse than an Opel Corsa.

Thought about buying a truck, checked used Ram diesel prices...I guess a trailer is ok.

Jeep looks pretty good for having 700lbs of plywood in it that far over the back axle.

Having worked one tradeshow I understand. We will have a handful of people so you get plenty of breaks.

You would get a chance to meet the best research engineer at SwRI.

Thought about that, but I'd rather find a truck or SUV.  I've decided to really try hard next year to finding a Galaxie or T-bird.

Once they open up the belt fed monsters, look out. It is a lot of fun, I want Aaron to come up some time for a shoot.

 

Side note the State police had the drone flying overhead. :)

Yeah, I was surprised to still have suspension travel. 

The most I had was the flooring, almost 1000 lbs + 2 passengers.

Got recruited for my old job.  Little bit better pay, but much farther away.  Meaning 90 mins one way, on a really good day with clear highways, and 72 degrees, and school is out.
