Visiting relatives at the weekend just gone


Was visiting relatives this weekend in Wakefield Yorkshire. I had jus got off the motorway at the Wakefield turnoff ,at around 12:00 noon, and decided to put fuel in the car.

I stopped at the shell garage to top up ahead of the journey home, I just pulled in to find just one other car at the side of me, a silver 2014 slk R 172 ,very nice, I just got out of the car to top up , when at the other side of me , a metalic blue slk350 R171 pulled in also.

What chances is there of 3 SLK's ,of the 3 different generations stopping together with no other cars on the forecourt being in one spot on a Sunday afternoon.

I know I should have taken a photo but I was gobsmacked to say the least .

All 3 cars were immaculate.I told the attendant as I paid for the petrol they are the same model , SLk, his reply , No they are not they all look different.He couldn't see the back of them. When I explained he said ho , you mean like the ford cortina mk1, mk2 and mk3
