the royal way: @ engine speed

280SL.jpgFlorimel recommends you drive carefully but with style. Perhaps the Mercedes 280SL for romantic afternoons in the country?

280SE.jpgDefinitely the Mercedes 280SE if your brothers want to borrow a car.

Both weigh over 3000 pounds. Try not to get them stuck off road.

Incidentally, when we ran Babysitters, we updated her to one of these, with tinted windows (anyone who's played in the first Babysitters game knows why the tint).
