^actually, most of the girls I hung with in HS and their mothers (all of who came from really wealthy families) took basically no care of their cars. They were utility pieces alone...everything from 60k+ X5s to $100k+ AMGs. Drive the sh1t out of it, don't clean or wax it, trade it in in a few years. They didn't care...honestly, people take care of their cars alot less than people think

I also have to agree with the above statement. Actually its all relatively accurate.

Females (for the most part) basically drive the crap out of their cars, not even a wax from time to time. You will find all sorts of receipts, hair thingies and starbucks sugar packets strewn about all over the floorboards. Almost all their warning lights are on, perhaps indicating some sort of catastrophé either in the near future or something that happened eons ago.

Next time you drive your girl's car, test the e-brake. $5 says that **** doesn't work properly. You know why? Because they like to engage the e-brake at the drive thru as their gettig their food and then forget its pulled up when they leave!

600SL AMG is the one you want , Real AMG top of the line. It had V12 in it at the time as well as other top end mercs.

This one is a terrible car not worth putting money in. Hope you passed on it
No you don't. This car used the same early M120 V-12 as the W140 S-Class. Prior to 1994/95, the wiring looms were made with a biodegradable soy-based material that biodegraded to a crisp due to the heat produced by the massive engine. If you didn't drive it, the rats would get to it. The best SL/S-Class from this era are the ones made from 1995-on; less engine issues, and, at least on the S, no more A/C leaks due to incompatible metals in the plumbing.

Fair enough. Maybe it's a midwest thing with the older women. Also, I don't equate hair ties and receipts with poor car care. Warning lights would be another thing but, like I said, that hasn't been my experience with affluent women.

As for the HS part...I wouldn't purchase a car owned by a high schooler or college kid regardless of gender.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing
