Lichfield - the home of the SLK

Spotted 3 others here.

Two were parked in the Tesco carpark. The first was a very nice R171 350 finished in silver starting with the number plate 'MI' which was a very nice example.

The second was also in the Tesco carpark which was (I think) an AMG in BENITOITE blue - the very best colour for an SLK I'm sure you'll agree!

The third is an R170 in the next street to me. One of these days I'll pop over to there and introduce myself.

Then there's mine! There are only about 30,000 people living in Lichfield so does that qualify this city as the highest number of SLKs per head of the population perhaps?

Up in the poor impoverished NE, we often have 5 or 6 parked outside our village (pop 750) pub, with a lot more in the local area.

I see very few SLK's around Columbia, SC. There are a lot of Z3's and Z4's though. (of course, the Z3 and original Z4 were assembled just up the road in Greer, SC making them "pseudo" German cars).

Same around Atlanta. For a big city, with it seems millions of BMWs and frequent benz sedans, very few SLKs - and I commute up and down the downtown connector and work in Buckhead, where you would see 'em if they were here ......
