An unfortunate tale...

I met someone yesterday who I found out shares a passion for SLKs. He knew about SLKWorld but had never joined up.

This gentleman owned an R172 250 and was very happy with it. The unfortunate part of the tale was that his good lady wife wanted an SUV instead and he had to trade in his SLK for the new car. He and I were chatting about this yesterday and he's regretted this ever since.

I do feel there is a silver lining to this tale. After chatting about the tours we've done in the UK under the banner of the forum I don't think it will be long before we are welcoming a new member "looking for an SLK".

Fingers crossed.
