Hey folks,
What a pleasure to find this community of SLK enthusiasts. In time I hope to be able to contribute too.

My 1998 R170 230 was owned by my late Dad. Every time we would visit, my son loved to drive around with grandad top down in the back roads of Maine ever since he was about 5 years-old. My son is 15 now and when my Dad passed away, he wanted my son to have it. It's in great overall condition, needing the usual tune up etc. We are going to fix it up and get it driving properly.
-Dan

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
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.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome Dan! I am probably one of the few one the board that have been to Fargo many times. I lived in MN for 40 years, but now I am in sunny Florida :) I am sure your son will love the car, enjoy!
