The most I've driven my 280 SE in years
« on: 13 July 2019, 11:21 AM »
I'm feeling fortunate to put some miles on my car this summer. I've had to let it sit for a couple of years after I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle.

It's running good and looking good.

The 6.9...........not so much.

Thanks rumb.

You know what's funny? Where I live not too many people know what a 6.9 is. After all, I'm in the Motor City where muscle cars and classic American cars abound. In my mind the 6.9 should get more attention. In reality, the 6.9 is the ultimate sleeper here. Almost no one ever notices it when I drive it, which is ok with me.

But your're right, that 280 SE get's a lot of attention.
