Big sister at Home Depot

A few weeks back, I stopped into Home Depot for a bit. When I came out a silver 350 was parked right next to my silver 280. Had I not been in a rush, I would have stuck around and meet the owners. It was a very cool experience, and I thank my fellow slk owner for providing it.

Hope you left the Forum's address! I plan to write a brief note to a neighbour...who has a red/tan 350 just down around the corner.

Today we saw a white/black (why are so very many fitted with the black interior?!) 350 with the top down pulling out of the condos on Riverside Drive in Ottawa, driven by a lady with scarf (a la Grace Kelly, wife had a "me soon" smile). We tooted our horn and gave her a smile and thumbs up - returned with a smile! BZ!

The SLKWorld administrator was nice enough to send me a few SLKWorld business cards. I added a small sticker on the back with my contact info. I place one on the window of parked SLKs just to turn them on to the site and maybe make a SLK friend. Wifey says I'm an SLK stalker!

May I suggest that we come up with a downloadable template and that way we can print them out and carry a couple with us in our gloveboxes... on the card we can have a place to enter our "Referred by: __________" member name if we choose to share that info. A Word Doc or PDF with like 6 to a page would be perfect.

I thought of it this past weekend I saw a nice silver SLK32 parked not too far from me at the city fairgrounds area, and wished I had something like that with me.

Great idea DJ... I believe you can get stock at Staples/Office Depot type stores with business card sized cut outs...may be 18 to a sheet or something like that.

Don't forget, if placing them under the wiper on an R171, not to raise the wiper arm too high, else you'll chip the paint at the back edge of the bonnet / hood
