Bad HTM,

sorry to disagree with everyone above but, you should have bought something cool that has some power, performance, looks etc and is the best deal in its category of performance cars.........







oh, wait, you did!....great car bro!

Well guys ,the vette just didnt cut it.After buying my wife a new E320 Benz for her b-day last year i got spoiled with german engineering,so i was always lacking something when i was driving my vette.I began to do some research on Mercedes Benz,for something that was fast,and here is what i ended up getting last saturday night.
2004 E55 AMG Mercedes Benz
5.5 L Supercharged V-8
469 [email protected] 6100 rpm
516 [email protected] rpm
This thing is very fast ,incredible is more accurate.I got lucky and found a used one in Naperville ,Illinois.Since Mercedes only makes 1200 a yr for the USA they were very hard to find,i called about 40-50 dealers across the country and ended up finding one 60 miles from my house.I even feel i got a good deal on it.
They had one in the showroom that was identical to mine only difference was it was black,it had a sticker of $103,900,mine had 1428 miles on it and i got it for $90,000.Them 1428 miles saved me $13,900 off the sticker plus taxes on that money also.A 2004 car with only 1428 miles on it isnt used in my book but it was in theirs and that was a good thing.This is the fastest production car i have driven and the options on the car are absolutely incredible,the car has sensors in it that will inflate the seats during a hard cornering manueveur .If i am cornering hard to the left the right side of the seats inflate so you dont slide out,very cool option.This car corners better than my vette did and is alot faster.0-60 in 4.2 seconds,90 -130 is awsome,the dealer said the only other production vehicle faster than mine from 90 -130 is a $350,000 Ferrari,wether that is true or not i dont know but i do know mine is very strong on the top end.At 25 mph i can smoke the tires,not bad four a 4 door sedan.The braking capability is unreal 13.0 inch vetilated rotors in the rear and huge 14.2 inch ventilated in the front with 8 piston calipers.Another cool feature is that Mercedes builds the car and then they send it to their AMG factory where on guy assembles the motor and then he signs his name on top of the supercharger.Sry didnt mean to ramble on but i am more excited about this car than i was when i got my boat

Got windows XP ?

midway down on the right is a Microsoft image resizing tool. very easy to use. just right click on any picture (or group of pictures) and click resize.

Hate to see what you would have bought if you had gone to Sears to just buy tampax for the wife.
