Cool A PINK one!

Saw this R170 in the parking lot of Longhorn Steakhouse in North Lakeland tonight. My kids spotted it a few months ago but couldn't get a pic.

They spent some $$$$ on the paint and wheels, and the interior was clean, too.

I left a business card in the door...

That is not pink. That Color is actually called East Berlin Rosa and was a Color Option on the Trabant.







just joking it is pink. Sure looks better on a Trabant.

You got that right! Looks like a rolling Pepto-Bismol tablet. Did you catch the R171 hood fins fitted sideways into the front fenders?!? Interesting is the nicest thing to say about that.

Be nice, everyone.

MK put a card on their car, they could show up. And I actually like it. It's original, not something everyone has.

On all the other mods, everyone keeps saying how you have to love it yourself, ignore others!

Although it's not my favorite color, who am I to say! I applaud the owner's individuality, detail and guts!

Personally, I think it looks pretty damned awesome. Don't think I could pull it off though!

I will accept female. But maybe it's a fabulous boy with flair! Either way I'll take it!

I saw a black older model at the Oaklyn library, a silver one in town & my hub said he saw one at Travel Smart. It was covered in a palm tree ad/media wrap (gasp)!

Other than the fins on the side I like it. You can see it is well cared for, and it stands out in a good way. I would vote for it in ROTM, as I respect anyone who is willing to invest some time, and money into maintaining such a great car as the SLK.


I agree with Berliner that there are people in this world with no taste....poor Ferrari being stickered with Barbie, and Hello Kitty...that is just awful.

Even some Volvo's are pink. I like it, and my daughter would love it.
MK, do you remember the car lashes? They would look nice on it.
