Doesn't matter. Florida is a no-fault state, and he hit them in the rear, which effectively makes him responsible. Dan Sent from my iPad On Jul 16, 2015, at 11:07 AM, Craig via Mercedes mercedes@okiebenz.com wrote: On Thu, 16 Jul 2015 10:46:05 -0400 Dan Penoff via Mercedes

This is where the economics as well as logistics kick in. The cost for fuel, and more importantly, time, would make it prohibitive, although I do appreciate the suggestion. If Kaleb were closer it might make sense, but between having to take PTO at work and the boy being in summer session at

So the po lice/insco will say it is his fault for being young and male. Nice! Youngest son calls this morning. Not usually a good thing at this hour. Had a Jeep Cherokee cut in front of him, he hit the brakes but still ended up hitting them with the front left corner of the car. Jeep

Google says Miami to Tulsa is 1445 miles so round trip is pretty close to 3000 miles. At 20 mpg, that is about 150 gallons of fuel. I don't know about you, but I am getting to the stage in my life where I have no plans to drive a thousand miles a day so it would take some days. Even with 2 or

I live in Tampa, but it's still a haul, roughly 1300 miles according to the Google. Agree with the other points. I'm not interested in a road trip unless it's for a replacement, and a darned good one at that. Dan Sent from my iPad On Jul 16, 2015, at 12:05 PM, Randy Bennell via Mercedes

Wasn't there a nice green W124/OM606 on Benzworld recently in Ann Arbor or something like that? To be honest, I don't think it's going to make a lot of sense to put any money into this car at this point. It pains me to say that, but the economics probably bear out just getting another car.
