Pink R170 at Target-Upper NW DC

spotted this pepto-bismol pink r170 at Target in Upper NW DC today. I've seen it around this neighborhood a few times but today I had an opportunity to snap a photo (poor quality = camera phone). I'm not well versed in the r170's, but it looks lowered (?).

Was there a Mary-Kay bumber sticker on it? Must sell a lot of lip stick to get one.

That's revolting. Why would they do that to such a beautiful car?? It must be an area thing because in Pentagon City there is a neon green 170. If I see it again I will snap a photo. Quite disturbing...

"pepto-bismol" is an accurate description.. in color and needed meds after viewing the color.

where abouts in Pentagon City? I just moved to Pentagon City (15th and Fern area) about 2 months ago and don't spot too many SLKs in this area for some reason. Certainly would be interesting to see a neon green one.

Looks like a supersized Barbie's car that is well done. Some clear corners would be nice.

Wow, it does look like a super-sized Barbie car. I showed the picture to my 4 year old twin girls and they thought it was very cool. I'm in Annandale, so maybe we'll see it on the street. Hard to miss.

Jameslk350-have you ever seen the neon green SLK? I know you work near by Pentagon Row. I just moved to this part of town and work here, also and haven't seen it yet. I'll be sure to snap a picture if I see it!

What r they thinking? My favorite color is pink, and my first name is Marykay, but a bubble gum colored car? That's just not right.
