buying SLK: anyone up for a Saturday ride from Orlando to Pembroke Pines, FL?

I want to check out this SLK [1] with an intention to bringing it home the same day. At this point I miss a second driver, so if you live around Orlando and have some free time tomorrow Saturday and don't mind enjoying a 3 hours trip (should be a sunny day), then please let me know.

Gas both ways on me, of course

[1] may be mine tomorrow: http://www.everycarlisted.com/fl/pem...WK56F65F071462

its actually down to around 18k, which taking under consideration the "low" milage and options included, at this point either a) I may be very lucky, or b) there is something wrong with the car (that's why I am going to check it).

its one owner, carfax clean. will see.

...call them and ask them to have the Master Vehicle Inquiry from MB (they own the car as of now, and can ask any MB service manager for it...

It will list everything MB has ever done to the car, including recalls, and recurring problems..
