Thank you to all who voted and to the other ROTM entrants. I am really honored. Just less than three months ago, I found this forum of incredibly helpful folks and signed up. At that time the only MB I owned was a Sprinter van. I never dreamed that in short order I would own an SLK and win ROTM.

I'm not one to name vehicles, but a dear friend named the SLK "Scarlett" - on the basis that 1) it's red, 2) it's really pretty, 3) it's from the South (bought it in Georgia), and 4) to overcome a lot of practical and logical objections to owning such a vehicle, you just have to say "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a d***!"

So thanks from me and Scarlett!

For me it's all about the colour. My 2001 SLK320 is Firemist Red and it glows on a sunny day. Needless to say I polish it often!
