ltrain01rt's 1999 Mercedes-Benz C280 Sport

I got to see Franks new ride today. We met up at the high school that we both attended, many years apart obviously, so I could purchase a monitor he had for sale. Although I miss seeing that red R/T, he's got himself a sweet little 1999 Mercedes-Benz C280 Sport now, and it's in excellent condition. Hope to see you again in October Frank. Here are a few pix of the 5 minute meet.

not bad, looks like it weighs about 2500 lbs! and would be easy to fling around!

It's another one of those "the pictures don't do it justice" things.

I actually like the key on the dash. Better than some Saab's though with the key in the console!

Plus this car doesn't have a "key" - its infrared, so there is nothing metal to it.


Nice to see you as always Chet.... I'm going to clear her up this weekend and make a sig page for it... I'm gonna actually start it now, but pics won't be ready until Sunday probably.

Not really true, though! It cost him zero cash, and the other MB he was driving, which cost him the 2001 Intrepid R/T. The good part is the R/T is still in the family so he can still drive it should the mood strike.
