I can vouch ~ Merc travel is comfy travel. My dad had one too. And don't forget the trunk. It's huge. We used to call it a two body trunk. (Yeah, came to think of that way when we lived in Vegas.)

As for it being an old man car..., well it's all in the way you drive it. ;-) My dad drove his 100 mph across southern, rural Kansas, and the Nevada desert. Shhh. Not as zippy as the Tib, but still zippier than many other things on the road.

Did your dad have the mud flaps and the pleather tonneau roof? Its all in the details!

And hubcaps. Don't forget the hubcaps. The last time I had hubcaps on my car was 1999. Coincidentally also the last time I used US Mint cash, or ink-based writing utensils & dead-tree paper.

So yeah, hubcaps. Did your dad have hubcaps on his car? My guess is, "No."

Hmmm. I believe there may have been hubcaps, but very plain, standard things.

You could take the hubcaps off, and the mudflaps off, but I don't know what to do about the roof.....

When I was in Garland before we moved, the project manager told us he brought his dad's "pimpmobile" to fit us all in for lunch that day. We were all very curious. Sure enough, out in the parking lot was a late 90s Buick Park Avenue...with hubcaps, mudflaps and a pleather tonneau roof.

I have no intentions whatsoever to defile that vehicle. It would greatly diminish its character :)
