Everyone Needs an Uncle Bill



One day this summer an uncle and his nephew sat down to talk about cars. They talked about models, makes, and engines. They talked about fast cars and cool cars. The uncle told a funny story how the hood ornament of his 1999 MB C289 snapped off when he was brushing snow of the hood. 


They talked a long time.



An uncle and his nephew talking about cars.





Still talking ...


Two weeks ago the uncle sent his nephew the very hood ornament that used to be attached to his 1999 MB C280.


The nephew was excited. A REAL Mercedes Benz hood ornament!


Then, two days later ANOTHER package arrived in the mail with the following note ...


The note


Inside was a vintage Mercedes micro racer that does tricks -- it can go straight, it can go in circles, it can go fast, it can go slow.


And we all agree that everyone needs an Uncle Bill.


He's got mail!
