Bragging Rights . . . SLK 230"s per capita

I now know of 8 SLK 230's here in Humboldt County. Three yellows, 2 Silver, 1 Red, 1 Blue, and mine. County population is just under 135,000 . . . so that makes it 1 SLK 230 per 16,875. Now I am thinking that is pretty good "density" for an outback like Humboldt County . . . how is it around you?

McClain County, Oklahoma - 2010 population was 34,506. I thought of 5 real quick so that's about 1 in 7000. Most of it's farm country, but Newcastle is a flight suburb from the City.

R170's seem to be pretty rare around here. I'm sure I haven't seen them all but I am on the roads and streets around here probably 30-40 hours per week. I can think of one more black one, a silver, red, yellow, and a copper one that came up for sale this summer but haven't seen since.Pop. 315,000. That's about 1/52,500.

There are approximately 2000 employees in this cubicle maze I work in.. and three R170’s in the parking lot daily.. that’s 1 in 666… As far as the rest of the local area – I know of many.. some driven regularly and some garaged most of the time. The R170 is an inexpensive toy to most of us.. with dreams of moving up to the R171 or R172.
