So I've just come back from the US...

...after a 2 week stay in Florida, and despite doing nearly 1000 miles, I never saw a single SLK.

Not one.

Lots of hideous MPV's and trucks. It also seem the Challenger and Chargers are popular too, but didn't spot a single SLK (or many Mercs at all, aside from the odd E-class).

To be fair, the irony is that even in Oct/Nov it's too hot to get the top down.

Ah, well automotive beauty is not really the strong point of the good old US of A. We tend to prefer our pickup trucks and Camry's to German roadsters.

That said, if you get back over, try Palm Beach, South Beach, and Fort Lauderdale and you will see a few more Mercs.

Of course you could always take Jeff up on his invitation outside Tampa, and you'll see two SLK's for sure. 😊
