Welcome!

I know it doesn't define the beautiful state of Oregon, but I always think of the Roloffs now. They do have Mercedes including Matt's AMG. Not SLK though.


I can't think of a more beautiful part of the country to be able to drive a SLK! Wow. You must have a blast in it.

Keep enjoying it!

Ha ha, the truth is I don't drink, don't smoke and actually don't have any girl there (someone will say "oh ok, that's why you bought a SLK).
I'm Vietnamese, I graduated high school in VietNam, graduated bachelor in France and I just came to the US 3 weeks ago for my MBA program in finance at the UP
