Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! *** Just to update everyone who would like to know....my dad passed away from his illness on February 7th 2009 at 1:20PM. Thank you all for commenting on the video...he was so excited to see that people liked his car.

Mom is about to turn 70. She thought i was having her meet me for lunch
and i was bringing my new Audi in for service at a Mercede's dealership...I

2. I'm in sales / run my own company - I work 60+ hours during the week
(and some more on the weekends if need be.) I have worked my butt off so I
can afford to do this and help out those close to me. It doesn't really
matter what you do or what you sell - if you work your hardest and enjoy
what you do then you can eventually buy a Mercedes for your mother someday.
Thank you for all the kind comments and well wishes!
