It was purchased by a local salvage yard from ins. company after the accident and the owner spent the winter/spring having it repaired. I was talking to him about it and he said he replaced every body panel on the car, along with the interior and had fixed it up for his wife; he has his own CLS63 - it's good to own your own salvage company I guess LOL! Anyway, saw it for the first time going around today - that Caspian Blue colour still catches the eye for sure!

Anyhoo, just passing through - wow, can't believe the number of new "faces"!!! Hope everyone is doing good and keep the shiney side up! R)

Glad to hear from you again FishtailnZ :tu: How did the motor sound on the ol' 55? Perhaps ask the fellow to join this forum?

Thanks everyone! As much as the place has grown, it's good to see so many "old hands" still around :) . I'm not online near as much anymore, but it's nice to have a looksee now and then and see what's up with who.

That's one good thing about the car, mechanically it was not harmed in the least, so she sounds as good as she ever did! And I did leave a card on his CLS63 windsheild :) .

Buy it back!
As good a job as the new owner has done putting it back together, I really don't think I want a rebuilt, salvage title, warranty-less SLK55 :tu:

:) I'm with you there, and having a 500rwhp, fire breathing, topless Cobra has to make you smile!
It's making me grin ear to ear - not so much though some friends on cruise nights.. way later on cruise nights :D

But don't you miss your baby?

I used to have a 1993 Isuzu Rodeo that I still miss. A lot of crazy stuff went on in that Rodeo...
