Parking buddy

My Lady and I drove into KC to see the musical Rent playing at the Music Hall. Turned into our usual parking lot and spotted a silver SLK 300 parked in the shade. Was able to take a few pics and left a card under the wiper. Had a personalized plate that I have seen somewhere before. Car was still there after the show. I have been watching the new member threads in the hope that the owner might pop-in (or he/she might already be a member, I have seen the plate before). In the front shot, you can see La Bęte parked behind. A Mercedes 4-door parked behind La Bęte.

Looks like the silver SLK may belong to a female based on a lipstick smudge on the Starbucks coffee in the cup holder on the dash... Always hard to expect a female joining a car forum, but worth a try...

Interesting observation. I hadn't noticed but I did edit my post to reflect that possibility. Sloppy on my part.

I'm sure you will get lots of comments from us ladies proving you wrong! I joined the day before I bought my 2002 SLK in February 2018.

We do have ladies here.
We have a lady moderator @simplyslk
And a ladies section for when they tire of the men
https://www.slkworld.com/sophisticated-ladies-korner/

Not forgetting that we have (and have had) several his 'n hers cars on here.

Maybe the UK is different.
I know at least 4 SLK owning ladies and have met many more.
Kent has many.
