Since I pretty new to this thread( which I joined this thread a while back) ... I would like to introduce myself... Last summer me and my dad bought( dad helped me out most the most) a 2005 SlK 350 silver iridium and Ever since then it is also my first vehicle and my foremost dream car since fifth grade... Working hard in high school and saving up I knew that I could never afford such money..... till my dad was willing to give up his own truck :( for a car that I should've never owned... Till then hopefully someday I pay my dad back a tenfold.....:tu:.... And keep care of the car till the very last moment... Oh yeah and btw way thanks dad so much!:)

As a fifth grader in elementary school I would usually see Bmws, Mercedes and even a Porsche! past by everyday to school to pick their kids up..... Being the only kid that was different in the school and parents that brings an average amount of money... I was ostracized from other kids in the school... But that doesn't stop me from loving my family.

During the summer of my fifth grade year I remember my dad taking me to cosmos motors (shows off modded and sport cars.. That type of deal) for fun..:). As a family that has a history of driving Hondas and Toyotas and dreaming of owning a Toyota supra I cared less for other cars in the show. Till then I found a Mercedes slk on the lot.... After countless hours of starring at the vehicle I grown interest of other cars as well. Then I began to look up online of the slk350, after surfing on the web regardless I found many positive reviews of the car online.... Which thereafter became my favorite dream car.

Ever since then I began to put posters of the slk in my room ( which was free at the Mercedes dealership) and repetitive trips to the dealership I grown even more interest in the car.

What's even more exciting was driving the car itself.... Taking out to country roads I figured that it can out beat any other roadster such as the s2000, z4 and maybe even the Porsche boxster.

PS: for the love of driving cars.... Even slow cars too :burnout:
