The Evil Twin

I can easily spot an SLK in traffic. Especially, one like mine. They do stand out. Just the other day, I was driving on Burns Rd, on the twisty bits towards St Ives (a Sydney suburb). In front of me was an SLK350, identical to mine. The same silver finish gleaming in the sunlight and the same easy-on-the-eye rear with identical shape tail lights. It had its black top up. Err... black?? Is it some kind of two tone customisation? Hang on a minute! A rag top?? What the...??!
Ah, that. Just a boring CLK.

I agree, they do look surprisingly similar from back angle....

In the dark maybe....

On a rainy night...

And if your eye sight is failing...

Apart from the.above, very similar !

Wrong pair, though. It should have been obvious from the story that I'm short sighted. I need the concave lenses.
