My Nearly New 2010 SLK 300

On 1/ 30 I took delivery of my almost new 2010 SLK 300. Black with red interior, sports package, air scarf, and just about everything except Nav. and elec. seats. No need for the elec. seats but definitely missing my Nav.

Almost new because when I picked it up from the MB dealer who originally sold it it had just 1180 miles (now 4000). Lady has 5 cars she doesn't drive and trades every 2 years. I should marry her.

I drove up to Albany N.Y. from florida to pick it up then returned by going through the mountains in Pa. and the Smokeys in Va. I love this car and am having a ball driving again with the top down. Last conv. was a TR3 at the U of F in 1960

Hopefully this photo of my car with my co-pilot at the dealers in Albany shows up .... 1st time posting photo

Here is the Interior

I looked all over for a Black with Red Leather. They are hard to find and almost impossible with low milage but I love the combination. Striking.

My King Charles (Beatrice Kiddo) and I are VERY happy with our new car. She loves top down.

Hope to add more photos when the sun comes out and I can get a few at the beach.

Black paint & red seats. Same as mine. Wonderful combination!

Just a royal PITA keeping black paint looking clean!

Beautiful car! Nice contrast between exterior and interior colors. Love red interiors, sorry not a fan of black, but looks great. ENJOY.
