Why do most W126 owners have to be complete and total a$$holes?


I have long said that the folks over a BenzWorld.org are a contributing factor of why people that own W126 Mercedes have such a bad reputation... And no one can deny that just about any movie you see from the 1980's, 1990's and even some modern movies of today usually have the bad guy driving a W126 Mercedes, or at the least some form of "black" S-Class Mercedes... It's frustrating to say the least, as I really don't think I am an a$$hole... So I hate the stigma that goes with it!

Seems to me that everyone who drives a Mercedes is the cheapest son of a b1tch out there, although there have been a few rare exceptions in all my years and I would like to think maybe I could be one of them. But primarily, most people who own these vehicles are not only a$$holes, they are cheap! And I am not talking about just being thrifty, I am talking about being cheap to the point they are almost crooked! Can't tell you how many problems I have had when it has come to Mercedes parts sales, vehicle sales and even repairs! Sure, the R107 guys are a breed of their own, but when is the last time you seen a bad guy in the movies driving an R107? You just don't see it and I have noticed these guys are usually the real McCoy when it comes to Mercedes-Benz ownership, although I have only had a handful of R107 owners I have dealt with to base this on, but for the most part, a vast majority of Mercedes owners are complete and total douche bags of the highest degree.

I don't even bother really selling Mercedes Benz parts anymore, nor do I bother advertising that I work on them because of this. Every year I get at least 8-10 people just show up at my doorstep asking me if I work on Mercedes because there is always 2-3 in the driveway at any given time... I feel bad telling them it's just a hobby, but anymore that is the truth! I just don't feel like dealing with their bull$hit... It's a sad reality that has most recently thrust me into the arms of a Corvette and Cadillacs, if only because I don't want to be "That guy".

Anyone have anything to add?

Okay, maybe I am being hard on the W126 crowd on account of the BenzWorld bad apples... This 4th of July I didn't even think to say hello to everyone over there considering the anniversary of this forums very existence stems from a 4th of July fall out between us and them...

So that said, as they say, I realize I fit perfectly into the description above, but I am trying... I'm trying real hard to be the good guy!

Currently have every single W126 I own up for sale, if only to thin out the herd... I've hear people say "I was out, but they pulled me back in!", but in this case, I don't even think they are going to let me out... no nope...

My attic is full of W126 parts, the garage is full of W126 parts... I think it's safe to say, I am stuck with you fu@kers!

SELLC,

Since you're stating "your stuck with us", doesn't that mean also that Stoma ( on equal grounds ( & he's a Republican too)) be allowed equal rights here, & become an active member again, as surely he's "stuck with us" too ?....
