No pictures but, I just saw a Merc CLK350 that was Kermit green with 22" aluminum 8 spoke wheels that were green to match.

I had the pleasure of speaking with the gentleman who own this vehicle. I asked him if it were his automobile; he replied in the positive. Then he inquired as to the purpose of my photography and added that he did not approve. I explained that the photograph was only for personal use and then I rode off, quickly.

Seems like he would be flattered, unless he thought you were a cop or a PI.

They must have been fairly well-built cars, since so many are still on the road in decent condition.

This doesn't bother me a bit if the person parks in the far end of lot, where nobody else wants to park anyway, assuming that the lot isn't full. I used to do it when I drove a nicer car. The ones that piss me off are people who park as close as possible to the entrance and take up 4 spots with their lift-kitted, longbed, crewcab, dually. If your anatomy compensator won't fit in a normal parking space, park out by the road.
