Greeting from Topeka, Kansas

Hi, just joining. I live in Topeka, KS which is about an hour from Kansas City. I have an '05 SLK350. Not sure about all the terminology but the bells and whistles are alright by me

It's dark green with the wood trim and creme colored interior. It has the seats that are heated as well as heat blowing out of the head rest that hits the neck. It also has the plexiglass wind barrier between the roll bars.

I recently purchased an iPhone4 and couldn't wait to sync it up with my car - woops! I have the phone features but not the wiring. To fix this problem I had a Pioneer (bluetooth enabled) navigation system installed - amazing!!!

I'm eager to learn more about my car so I have joined this site. I look forward to visiting often.

Any members from the Topeka or KC area?

there are a few from the KC area (maybe 2 or 3 active members). I am originally from the KC area but moved to DC nearly 2 years ago. Welcome! post up some pics when you get some free time.

Welcome from NE England. You'll have to post a pic, dark green SLKs are very rare.

Welcome from Phx Az my mom has been in Topeka Ks for 30 + years. I came to Topeka when i moved to the States from Germany. I bet your Slk is one of the few Slks,s in town. Here are some historic sides of Topeka, Ks Washburn Uni. Poor Richards for breakfast and yes i know it is long gone. Theodores the bar in the basement that always had a good vipe on the wkends playing Jazz and Blues. Kevin Hoover from Topeka and Lee Mc Bee from Lawrence always ripped that bar apart with good music and let,s not forget the old strip joint called the Sasnak on North Topeka Blvd. they still have free Hot Dogs every night since i can remember . LOL what a small world. Good to have you here on this side

Thanks for the Warm Welcome Everyone!

What a nice group of people, thanks everyone!

@SLK350WDC: I put a pic on my profile and assumed it would show with my user id - must be the android that does that. I'll post some pics this afternoon in the photo gallery thread.

@Woolly: You're right, dark green is very rare - I haven't seen another one yet! I love that! Looks like yours is green as well? I wonder if it's the same color green as mine. I see yours is a 6 speed; mine is too! Love that! Shifting gears adds something special to the driving experience.

@Berliner: Way too funny. What a small world, indeed! My mother was from Koblenz, Germany. I remember going to Poor Richards as a kid and in my "wilder" days going there after the bars closed for some good eats. And you're right, very few SLKs in Topeka. In fact, I've only seen three. Two of them did not have local tags. The other one belongs to my sister. We might be the only two locally owned in town.

Welcome, Lawrence KS

Hi,

I just joined myself. I have a 2001 Bahama Blue SLK230 and live in Lawrence. I work out at Forbes Field during the week but usually just drive the SLK on off days.

Cheers,

Derek
