Creemore Valley Classics VIP Stories #58

I bought this Mercedes from the original owner, a neurologist. He had a brain aneurism (ironic) and wanted to sell the car so that it could go to a good home. Originally purchased brand new at Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills and always a local car.

I purchased the car in Santa Monica, California in June, 2014. An interesting story the previous owner told me, is that he was driving down to San Diego on the I-5 late one night. He became stuck in the middle of a police chase on the wrong side of the road. The person being chased slammed on the brakes, gave the him thumbs up, and continued with his chase.

Owner: Rubin Howard
