So as most of you know I don't post often, but I've made the move from New York to Washington State (South of Seattle 30min) and I'm finally getting to explore around and ride when work allows me (usually pulling 50-60 hour weeks) so this is what I've been up to!

Haha no this is not tree farm however tree farm is about 10 min from my house, these are a top secret set that I'm probably not even supposed to know about, pretty run down except this landing though. We gotta ride soon man, I'll actually probably be riding Seattle this coming Sunday.

That Mercedes. If I had one, I'd tune it. I rarely see tuned Mercedes like that. It would be different. But the problem is, they look too nice stock. Too bad they don't make cars like that anymore. And those indoor jumps.....

Been doing real good man, hope the same is going for you! And I get a solid 30-35mpg, can't complain. Might eventually do a turbo diesel swap on it, for now doing white walls with some lowering and a roof rack

Thanks man! And agreed they do look so nice stock, I'm also lucky to get one that's been taken very well care of, bought it off an older guy that's owned it the past 30 years!

not with 500k miles. Idk why you would lower it but whatever. I'd V8 swap it or something though.

Just because it has high miles doesn't mean it isn't in better condition than the same car with 50,000. And I'm into lowering cars, just my taste personally. I'd rather do a built big turbo diesel swap than v8 swap

I mean't to say it was driven a lot obviously wasn't hating on it or anything like that looks clean. I kinda hate the way diesel's sound but that's just me i guess.

No worries man, all opinions. If everybody had the same taste everything would be boring!
