1989 Mercedes 560SEC

I owned this car when I lived in Detroit, MI and was a testament to Mercedes build quality as it suffered a lot of abuse yet never let me down.   When I moved to Michigan, I had decided that I wanted a 560SEC as a car – I had always liked the model and in the snowy conditions I wanted a car with ABS brakes etc.   This particular car wasn’t exactly what I wanted, it was a bit tatty, but it was cheap ($3400) and came with a bunch of spares and had the European lights fitted.  (in the 80s, The US government mandated sealed beam headlights which are so dim they are dangerous).   I bought the car in November 2007 and sold it in June 2011, and during the time I owned the car it went from being my main daily driver in Michigan to becoming a winter beater/driving parts car for my other 560SEC.    I finally sold it for $900 the week before I left the USA.
