Excited!

My SLK is ready for me to collect on Saturday afternoon! My friends are bored with me going on about it, my husband is delighted as he then gets the TT to himself, and I just want to go out and play!

Have fun. Don't let your husband drive it, it is far nicer to drive than a TT. If he gets his hands on it, you will never see it again!!!

SLK's were made in three models up to 2004 they were 170's 2004 to 2011/2 171's then 172's

Not sur of the exact dates of model change but a 230 model is a 170.

Dont worry about Jeff moving this to the 170 section he is a tidy up man Its all that military training. He would have a fit if he saw my workshop

Should be a good day for collecting the car - bright & sunny. Bit chilly though.

Wrap up warm & get the top down!

Park infront of Tattershall Castle & take some photos!

If you have very many friends it will take a long time one at a time. LOL

He honestly has no interest whatsoever in driving it! He only took driving lessons after he bought the TT for me because he wanted to drive it. He's had motorbikes for years!

The SLK is all mine - and I think we got an absolute bargain. 6k with 29,000 miles on the clock. I need to get the wheels refurbished but other than that it's pretty much in mint condition.
