RE: 4kq parts and an explination
When I was about 12, we _travelled_ in our 450sl... Mom, Dad, me and my
6-year old sister. I guess it helped that my dad was once a loadmaster for
C-130's in the Air Force...
I think we got in the neighborhood of 13mpg... Of course it was only a
couple years old at the time.
Either way, I'd have one now if I could.
