Hello,

My name is James and I live in El Paso, Tx. I’m a retired Army veteran, originally from Dearborn, MI. Growing up around Detroit, I’ve always had a love of cars. I built my first hot rod (1978 Pontiac Sunbird with small block 350) when I was 16. I currently own a 2013 Chrysler 300C, 2005 Honda Shadow Spirit 1100, 2003 Mercedes SLK320, 1997 Pontiac Trans-Am, and a 1986 Mercedes 420SEL. I have owned a 2010 Mercedes C300 Sport, 1983 Datsun 280ZX, and a 1983 BMW 320I. I’m looking forward to learning more about my SLK and contributing where I can.

Thank you for your service....I will also rotate your profile pic :D

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 as we welcomed you 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.
