CONGRATULATIONS!
A beautiful car, brilliantly embellished by its owner. Great job, Steve.


Somehow, I feel like everyone here on SLKWorld shares in this victory. To expand on that, feel free to send your trophy to my place where it can be displayed on rotation. I'll PM my address.

I certainly hope so. It has been this forum and her great members that have provided the guidance, opinion, instruction and in some cases installation towards this great automobile. Without the help of everyone here this most likely would not have been accomplished. I consider my SLK as a "Group" effort and therefore believe that this honor rightfully belongs to the SLKWorld Forum as a whole. Everyone here has been so supportive, reassuring as well as responsible for the results. I was simply the financier.

Wow Steve!!! So happy for you...very proud too - so cool to see the 171 (deservedly) next to cars with legendary reputations - Gullwing, 190 (yes?), looks like a CSL down the line... Bodes well for the future or our beloved mark. Steve, you've made a big first step for all of us and our cars. So, thank you and congratulations.
