    Oh, it's real all right. I think that was the first year of the E55, and maybe the second year of the round-headlight E-class. Prior to that, the AMG-modified E-class was the E-500.

    I am 52 years old and my interests are as long as my years. In addition to Cp (mainly Drosera and Utricularia) and other exotic plants, my main interests revolve around the guitar. I play acoustic guitar, perform, write and teach on the instrument. My muscial tastes are wide ranging, but I work mainly in the traditional forms of folk: bluegrass, folk, old timey, celtic and delta blues, mainly fingerstyle guitar. I collect and have an obsession with acoustic guitars. I am also into glass beads and MARBLES. I have a glass bead curtain of 150 6 foot strands which I hand strung. I am an avid rockhound and geologist with a focus on crystals, and enjoy tent camping cojoined with my in terest in collecting. I also am a sci-fi/fantasy fan and am well read in "vintage" sci-fi/fantasy. Other interests are digital macrophotography, poetry, cooking. I am a student of mysticism and the occult sciences. I am an ex-brewer and beer snob. I like to party. I was and forever shall be an ardent fan of the Grateful Dead, and have a keen interest in psychedelic music and art. I was a sailor, but will go to sea no more.

    eplants02, my father also used to have the 1999 E55, it did 0-60 in 5.4 I think, although some people say they could do 5 flat... The new car is good for 60 in 4.2, and on a road course I have taken it 111 mph. Quite the car. 469 hp and 519lb-ft of torque at 2650rpm. The old one would move, but the new one flat hauls. As for the two body style old E500, that was a project with Porsche, which provided the proof needed to justify building an AMG variant of the E-class. Before that, AMG supplied aftermarket parts for the E that were some help, but the complete car is much better. Just my one fiftieth of a dollar. Ciao,

    Lithopsman,

    Thanks for proving I'm not going crazy! And yes, I'm slumming over here with only 400 ft/lbs of torque.

    Tamlin,
    Great stuff! Who's your favorite sci-fi author? Mine without a doubt is Philip K ****.

I controlled the airspace from about San clemente island south past TJ. I also worked the areas off of Big Sur, Salinas, and Oakland. So I am familiar with all of the nocal stuff. Towers are still used, probably more then ever. Basically, there are severaly layers to the Air Traffic system. 1-the tower, they get you up to about 10k feet or so, depending, and hand you off to 2 approach control and they can take you as high as 23k feet or so. Then there is us, the center. We handle you up at the highest elevations, as well as to the ground in some spots. I control around Raliegh NC, and there are places known as uncontrolled airports where pilots do their own thing and we clear them to where ever after that. It can get to be very busy. We handle in the neighborhood of 8500 operations on any given day.
    That's cool. What do you think of Free Flight and the new global grid system of fixes?

    73, I am not sure what you mean by the free flight, but I think you mean the newer gps system by the second part of your post? The gps and waas and al that good stuff is really amazing. The pilots and cpus do it all themselves. It is kinda scary, but when the system goes down, it is right back to the old standby...us.

    Capslock, I don't wan't to rain on your parade but I was thinking it was 365lb-ft, but regardless, that car really hauls, and before you sell it, you must engage in at least one very fast, very fun passing of a slower (preferably with a trailer) car or truck. Wow. It is immensely powerful, with an extra surge at around 85-100 MPH. Enjoy!!
