Although I haven't been involved with MB's for very long I am a 57 year old gearhead with mad crazy skills and I worked hard for over a year and spent a good amount of money to get into the 40 mph club and I get annoyed when I see this and hear this from people. So I say to all put up or shut up!
Congratulations Sir!

I'm still trying to get into the 20 MPH Club (there is one I hope). Still 2 miles per hour shy ;-/.

Some days I think I could walk faster than that - lol.
