History
2nd owner, 'bout 44K mi. - my wife's ride. She actually wanted a 280 SL, but she doesn't like soft convertibles or storing hard-tops - she's had a '69 Alfa Spider since it was new - but, she's never driven it - doesn't like manuals either (good for me!). We've had many M/B's since the late 70's. A 420 SEL saved her life when she was "T" boned by a kid going so fast he simply lost control swerving through traffic, spun out and hit her at the drivers door. She was barely shaken. However, the car "died."

The flip-top auto SLK was a slam dunk. BTW - I used to compete in Porsche club events, so light wrenching suits me fine with the small stable of wheels we still maintain.

Looking to improve seats - lumbar support is horrible for long trips.

Thought about better looking spoiler on rear as stock makes it look truncated a bit.
