Hi all,
My name is Mike from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Bought my first ever M-B model vehicle in April of 2018 It was a one-owner SLK 350 with a manual trans, 48,000 miles. Now, 16 months later, it has 59K miles.Has all the nice convience options, EXCEPT the auto trans. Exactly the combo I wanted, with the Fire Mist Amber paint. I am a vintage “Corvette” guy at heart, and prefer manual trans cars. The SLK makes a great “fair weather daily driver” for me...fun, easy to drive!
Happy to be a member here!
Mike C

A thanks to Jeff Banks

Well, I THINK I have all the required info downloaded to the site. A BIG thanks to JEFF for helping me through it. Finally had to do this through my laptop...could NOT figure the system out on my IPhone??????:frown: To all the members that "welcomed" me, I thank you ALL!!! I have not figured out the "like" button that Jeff tried to direct me to, and It still eludes me. OH, and I will get my VIN posted in the profile in a few days (weeks?):confused: lastly, I want to say I got a chuckle out of the member who asked if "banned" is part of my site name. I thought it WAS GOING TO BE! But I have finally shed the "BAN". SO again I thank you all and look forward to talking cars with you folks. Mike C

Mike,

after 5 posts you should be able to see the like button to the right of any post
you cannot like yourself so don't look for like in your posts

thanks button bottom right

Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment or use the 'quote' button so we know who you are asking or replying to or referencing.
