Default Candy & Lil Red's Adopted Sister

Well, as you all know, Candy got an adopted little sister from Germany a few months ago, Lil red.



Well, we kave known that the girls are getting along great, but they still really didnt get along with my wifes baby, a snooty little garage queen, Pixie (2003 Mustang V6 coupe with 39600 miles). My wife has been talking about traiding her in on a more usefull car, something with a little more room and luxury. So today we went on a quest to adopt a new sister that the girls will get along with better. My wife did mention that she would like to adopt from Germany to help Lil red feel more comfortable in the family. Well, I never exspected to bring home another girl today, let along one with such a famous family heritage. But she did look like she needed a good home and we just couldnt argue with the adoption agencys deal. She doesnt have a name yet, but once we get to know her better well figure that out. So here are the vitals.

2003 Mercedes Benz CLK430 Cabriolet
4.3 L 275hp aluminum V8 5 speed auto
AMG Appearance package (17x7.5 F & 17x8.5 R rims, F&R bumper covers & side skirts)
Black leather interior
BOSE premium AM/FM 6CD 7 speaker stereo
67000 miles
And alot more than we know so far.........

She better let you polish those headlamps. Tell her you're going to buy an eye lift!

So you only get one wiper blade?

Nice car! The Germans definitely make solid cars with good driving feel. If you can work on them yourself, they can even be affordable. Good luck with it.
