My name is Shawn, and on my 50th birthday, my wife bought me a 1999 Mercedes Benz SLK230 Kompressor. It fell in love with this car many years ago when I saw on the streets. Then I cut out a picture of it and put it in a glass jar. So I was offered a new truck from my wife but I wanted to get out of the truck scene and bump up my look and lifestyle. By chance, her friend was selling their car and unknown to me as to what she was up to. She bought me the car and it just so happened to be Mercedes 230SLK! She didn't know that it was the car that I wanted for so long.
So, just like any used car, it has wear and tear, and "I" have to fix it. But, to be honest I don't mind so I will post videos of all the trials and tribulations that I've gone through and give you all tips and tricks on what you will need to make it an easy repair.
Thanks for having everyone and I'm looking forward to anyone who wants to reach out to me about the videos or just want to talk.
Best Regards, Shawn

Shawn, you must be stoked! Same thing here only I stumbled upon mine and now the love affair has begun. I'm sure we will have our fights but I guess as long as I'm good to her, she will be good to me. Best of luck with your new lady!
