i want to introduce to you the newest member of our family! we named her riesling (ries for short :) because she is white, german, and oh so sweet.
i am head over heels for this one. she drives like a dream and the sunroof works! i think we may even have working a/c for the summer! that, my friends, is more than i could ever ask for.
1983 300d turbodiesel. super clean, purrs like a kitty cat.
and, only 213,00 miles?????? a baby! she's got so many more wonderful years ahead of her.
you know, in her honor :)

My boyfriend will be extremely jealous. He's wanted a turbo diesel for years, but could never find the right one.
And I'll have a drink in honor of your new car, too! ;)
