Just bought a 2006 SLK 350. I grew up on sports cars but haven't owned one since the 80s ('52 MG/TD, '67 Datsun 1600, '67 Volvo 1800S and a '70 Fiat 124 Spyder). I checked out Z4s, 350Zs and Boxsters but the SLK just felt right. Plus, I always wanted to own a Mercedes since I couldn't get the 1960 300SL Roadster I wanted (which goes for over $1M now!). So now I can celebrate my 2nd childhood in style. This is a great web site and group of people so I'm looking forward to this too.

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.
