Hi All,

I'm Larry from the Shenandoah Valley in West Virginia. I just bought a 2001 R170 after shopping for about a year for an older model roadster. It's got 95K miles, runs strong, looks great and my wife thinks it's the best looking car on the road... I agree. It's been 25 years since my last roadster, which was a 1982 RX-7 five speed daily driver. The SLK is officially a toy and with winter approaching we probably won't be fully intimate until next summer but that's okay, I'm in no rush... she's beautiful, feels great and that's good enough for now. Happy to be here. Thanks.:bananapowerslide:

If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, 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.
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.

Thanks for your welcome from Northern California. Although I live in West Virginia, I am a native Northern Californian myself, having grown up near the banks of the American River on the outskirts of 1950's Sacramento. It's been many decades since I went through Eureka as a kid and found it a wonderful place. My sister-in-law lives a bit south of you in Gualala. Just wanted to thank you for your friendly greeting.

Larry, Gualala is north of Sacramento nearer to Mendocino but still a great place to visit! I love it there! The car shows are awesome & the
Roadhouse is good I hear!
