Getting real close now

Got the call from the dealer stating that my 2013 SLK 55 AMG has been off loaded from the cargo ship in Brunswick, Georgia and is now at the VPC (vehicle prep. center) for a few days. As many of you know I took European Delivery of the vehicle in June while I was in Germany.

Soon my baby will be on the truck for the dealer in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The great dealer I worked with was Jackie Cooper Imports, in Tulsa,; what a fantastic dealership.

Can you post some pictures of your European Delivery? I'm especially interested in the pickup area in the building. What did it look like when you first set eyes on it?

I heard somewhere that AMG's were not available for Euro Delivery... maybe they meant it's at a different building? The information I heard may have been dated...

Got THE call!

Today, Sat. Aug. 10, the dealer called to say my new 2013 SLK 55 AMG was just unloaded off the truck. I'll be picking it up on Monday or Tuesday next week. Life is good and will be even better.

You should be able to pick it up today. Isn't the sales area open on weekends?
