Hi Gentlemen and Ladies

I live in Central Queensland inland and south of Gladstone and Rockhampton respectivly.
I own the only 1998 SLK 230 Kompressor in the area although there was one in Rockhampton a few years ago.
Black Opal is the colour
Black leaqther with carbon fiber inserts in the dash
AMG wheels
88K on the clock
I have sourced most of my spare parts from
MB Spares Parts Dept. - Murray [spares@mbspares.com.au]
who offer not only excellent prices but customer service and delivery you only dream of.

Smile Brisbane run

Howdy all. Wouldn't it be an awesome sight to see 10 -15 (or more) SLKs cruising down the road somewhere in the South East? Just wondering if anyone else has had the same thought? Wouldn't that make for a great photo opportunity to post on the site?

We have three potential starters, any more intrepid explorers out there that want to be part of a few hours cruising? Do you fancy a midweek run or a weekend run?

Good luck Phil, it only takes a few keen owners to get started and once they actually meet the enthusiasm for the SLK and participating in more drives grows. This drive with Rory could be the break you are looking for and once the other guys on the forum read about your day's run they will be motivated enough to investigate by turning up for the next drive.
They will not be disappointed as we southerners have demonstrated. As Rory said, great top down Autumn driving weather too - even down here!
All the best mate,
Sean
