Intro. (Keep getting request to do an intro. :) (I thought I'd previously done this.) dennphill herein sunny Niceville these days. Loving retirement in the ole "FLA". I was listening to Tallahassee Lassie on XM radio's 60s station and in the lyrics they say "down in FLA," and it got me to thinking just low long a go we went to 2-letter state identifications! (Thanks USPS.) Millennials won't know what I'm talking about, but that's enough to say about MY age. The 2002 SLK (bought new) is my second such. The original was bought in Germany as a "Jahreswagen" and was a 2000 that I bought with low miles and less than a year old for about $21K. We left Germany in 2002 and I sold it for just under $21K, and ordered a new 2002 (same color, same specs except the US version had cruise control and a CD changer in the trunk) that set me back about $42K. I have always been thinking I wish I'd grey-marketed the car through Canada to the US! anyway, it's a recreational driver with (now) about 85K miles. It will be my last sports car. This is a nice site. Use in the past has been appreciated. Come visit us in the Panahandle...or the Redneck Riviera as I've heard it called. Nice beaches - nice people!

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. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
FREE!! 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.

Wow. What a welcome!
Jeff (I really do love Master Sergeants - they kept my nose above the water level more than a few times in my 28 year Army career as a maintenance officer!!!), I will look for next year's picnic...maybe a trip with my wife there (wherever) would be a good time.
All others - thanks.
