R170, R171 & R172 all silver all in a row

SLK's are pretty common in my area (San Ramon - East Bay), I see a few pretty much everyday just about anywhere I go in the area. However, this morning was a little different. I was driving on San Ramon Blvd and stopped at the light approaching Crow Canyon. Directly behind me pulled up a silver R171 and directly behind them pulled up a R172.

As I said, SLK's are pretty common around here and I don't usually pay that much attention when I see one, but today was really a unique as there were 3 of us in a row, same/similar color and each body style.

I have no idea how rush hour traffic is in that part of the East Bay, but if it's no too bad I would think Crow Canyon Road would be a fun commute if you are heading towards Castro Valley with wide open roads!

Rush hour isn't to terrible over here, but on the weekends many of the twisty roads are wide open

I love Crow Canyon Road. I used to drive it instead of the freeway when I was coming down from Sacramento to visit my Dad in Castro Valley. I also love the restaurant Pasta Primavera in San Ramon. They have great butternut squash raviolis! You should come up to Sacramento for a drive sometime and meet with the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts. It would be so much fun! I always post on the SLK events page all of our events.
