The SLK 280 is fantastic. Purchased as a summer car for GT open top cruising.

I did not expect such a fun car, when the revs and speeds were pushed. Very temped to join the local SLK group for next track day.

This is how the SLK looked, on the day, I decided to buy her, after my test drive.

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.
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.
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.

Hello and welcome. I love track driving too but not with my SLK. If you are interested in driving a Nascar there was supposed to be a track day last Sunday at Kawartha Downs Speedway but due to hail it was cancelled.

Address of Track: 1382 County Rd #28 , Fraserville, Ontario done by Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. They are rescheduling, call them 855-227-8789 and see if you get in on one of there rescheduled dates. You get 10 laps in one of their Nascars for what you would have paid at the SLK meet up using your own car. I have tried them before and was satisfied with the experience.

Pawtucket, RI 02860

Welcome

Welcome aboard from another 2007 SLK 280 owner who also didn't realise just what fun was to be had from this super little car. I love it to bits and I'm sure you will too.
You have found a great site here full of very helpful people and a vast repository of information.

Here's to driving Topless
