I am 63 and retired and love my SLK320.I had promised my late wife that when we retired I would buy her what she wanted to drive.She wanted a white SLK but she died 5 years ago after a 13 yr battle with MS.So 2 yrs ago when I retired I started looking for a white SLK and found this 2001 SLK320 and I fell in love with it and baby it every day.I pick with my son about waiting on me to die so he can get it because he loves it also.

Hi and welcome from Scotland. As also 63 I would hope we have some time to go and enjoy our cars for a few years yet. I'm sure your car will keep long enough for your son to enjoy.

Hi and welcome from SW Florida. I got my baby when I was 61 and I love her. My 3 "kids" all want her for different reasons. My oldest son is her keeper (he's a mechanic & keeps her running), my youngest son wants to sell her to get a 1957 Cadillac and my daughter just does not want either to have her. LOL

Hey there CARCRAZY
fantastic story and welcome from the UK
May i give a great theory on age from an older gentleman i met in Washington DC some years ago:- "IF YOU ADD THE NUMBERS OF YOUR AGE TOGETHER(6+3 =9) AND THAT IS YOUR AGE AND YOU WILL NEVER BE OLDER THAN 18 AS WHEN WE MAKE 99 WHICH ADDS UP TO 18 ! THEN HE SAID FAILING THAT WHY NOT ACT YOUR SHOE SIZE AND NOT YOUR AGE FROM TIME TO TIME" he was a senior banker,bye the way i am 61
regards Gordon

Hi and welcome from Southern England.
Glad to hear you stayed true to your plans and got the car your wife wanted. I am sure she is smiling down on you everytime you start her up and go for a run.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
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, 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.
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.
