Here are some pictures of the ongoing reconstruction of the C as I turn my attention to the exhaust system. In the left picture I have one side replaced and the other side shows the exhaust pipes and mufflers that were on the car when I got it. The picture to the right is the old system -- like nothing I have ever seen. I must have taken 50 pounds of weight off the car with the mufflers and home made brackets. It is nice and quiet now.

Planning ahead for the year 2019, the 2015 300 will be an affordable used car and I want one! When my son heard me say a few years ago that I was now more interested in 400 watts of stereo power in my modern car than the same amount of horsepower he was aghast and said he didn't want to hear that said again. Well, the 2015 300 has an available Harman Kardon radio with 900 watts and 19 speakers..........who is going to order one and save it for me?
