Finally afre more then 5 years of searching i have purcaased on of my favourite cars a Mercedes 500E, Less then 1500 were ever imported in the States, and im sure half of them are already gone, so finding one of these it's not and easy task. A car so special like this makes it the only Mercedes to be made in conjuction with Porsche, a 5.0L V8 Engine which produces 330HP and 360 Torque, this monsted was a killer in it's time (1992-1994), Anyways let me get back to how it all started as a trip from Miami to NYC which lasted 30 Hrs on NON-STOP driving, an experiance i wish to forget but probably never will. It all started Monday afternoon when we arived to Miami via Air, at around 7:45 we landed at Miami International Airport at which point we were picked up by the ex-owner of the soon to be my baby. After a good check up and test drive, I decided to buy it and head on home to NYC. At this point it was almost 10 p.m. and our trip back home had officially begun.
It was all nice and smooth untill 3 hrs into driving on 95N we were forced to exit the highway at which point we learned that it had been closed due to Forest fires, and we had no where to go except head on 50 miles west to the Florida TPK, but before that we decided to make a short stop for some grub and Gas and we had a chance to take some pics
After getting back on the higway we had to stop becuase of a car accident near Orlando which delayed us for an additional hour,
After continuing we by mistake forgot to get off the TRPK in Orlando and take HGWY4 . Now we found ourselfs driving on the lonely Florida Trpk for hours, untill it finally turned into 75 at which point we could take RT10 and go straight into Jacksonville a road that delayed us for a good 2-3 additional hrs.
Around 6 A.M we got into Georgia,
were we stopped of for some brekfast and decided to continue with our trip
Speeding was def not an option even tough we were so tempted to step on the Gas
Exiting Georgial and entering South Carolina (which was the most boring part of the drive for 4 hrs it was nothing but trees on both sides
After getting into Norht Carolina we decided to stop for some lunch and give the old lady a nice cold bath
