I spotted 1 red R 171 the last 3 days I have been in Las Vegas and the driver was one blonde hot Betty.

Quick background - in my town I see another SLK maybe about once a week. Last Thursday was odd though. Left work and was less than a mile away from the office. Light turned yellow, but it was a nice day and I wasn't in any hurry with the top down, so I stopped for the light. Took a look in the mirror and a blonde gal pulled up behind me in a white R171. While I waited for the light to change, another blonde in a red R170 appeared to my left, turning right beside me. Purely by chance, we momentarily had all three SLK models in a 600 square foot area in black, white and red. Not sure that will ever happen again in this town.

Had a similar one last year, pulled up on a three lane junction in the left hand lane, in the middle was a silver 171, and to the right of him a beautiful red 172, as the three of us acknowledged each other, the driver of the red cars' jaw dropped the same time as mine. It was one of my many cousins who I hadn't seen for at least 15 years - since our Nana's funeral - so we pulled away and pulled into the first layby further up the road to catch up!
