Now we officially don't exist

The next step for our cars to becoming a classic...

Before I had a W209 CLK. That was removed when they started with C and E coupes. The great thing about it was that I still had the latest model! No more facelifts, no more new versions.

Yeah, It's a weird feeling! We had a SEC, CLK, and ML before; it's funny that all these well known product lines are gone now!

As we have now been 'struck off' we should ask Jeff to set up an exclusive sub-forum with SLK 55 AMG owner access only.

But not just for us Aussies, all you '55 owners can join in.....

Cool

It's not just us....it's all SLK owners

SLC could have it's own 'World'..perhaps those that dare venture down the road of owning an SLC can form a 'breakaway' group.

I don't recall seeing all CLK owners jumping into a 'E' class owners group in 2009 when the CLK ceased production and was erased from the model list. The CLK was a hybrid of sorts using 'E' styling and 'C' platform. Isn't that the same as what the SLC is doing?

There does appear to be a few CLK owners clubs and Forums on the net and mixed in with MB World etc, but who is going to be the first to come out of the closet and create an SLC club?

Like Sean said. They're killing off big engined cars. I have no plans at all to get rid of the 55. But I know the only way is up to a 63 or 65 in other models.
