Hallo Roadster boffins:hail:

I am Gøran, 1965'er from the south coast of Norway. Not married, but lives together with Lillian. Marriage is kind of "out" here :D

We are the proud owners of a brilliantsilber 96 SLK 230K with ca 86k (53k miles) on the clock. It has a full Rieger body styling, and some engine mod's,
RH springs, and "only" 17" rubber(225/45 - 255/40)

I've been lurking around here for a while and wasn't shure I had the time for "another" forum. But when I saw you had a pic of me here..............:rb

goran welcome to the forum, I am surprised why your mileage is quiet low or less than average for a 96.

I just went to Google Earth and looked at South Norway,,, they only have two roads,,,,:):):):)only kiddin. Have never been to Norway but a pilot that once worked for me married a gurl from Norway. They would bring pictures back from visiting her relatives,,, what a cold place...but beautiful. What city do you hail from.??? Google Earth is great to zoom into places you want to look at... some areas better resolution than others. If you zoon into Winston Salem NC and Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, you can see the helo on the pad... amazing stuff....:hb::hb::hb:

Hi guys

Thanks for the nice greetings :Beer:

@alroumi: The reason for the low mileage are something you don't see a lot of; winter. The car "sleeps" 4 - 6 months pro year. So in reality it's only been 6 years on the road......

@412driver: Yep 2 roads is pretty close to what we got..... I live in a little costal "town" called Søgne - or sogne in google earth, 16km west from Kristiansand.

Try LiveSearch and you might get it in 3D, mainly for large cities in the US.

Is this the helipad?

Gøran!

Norway is one of my favorite places!
Stunning scenery!
I have have been to Bergen a couple of times for work. The views are breath taking.

Enjoy the forum and welcome from Wimbledon, London UK

Once again thanks for all nice greetings from around the worldY)

@ doug: Every village has a joker..... I think your'e doin a good job:tu:

@ Wimbeldon: OMG.... Bergen:rolleyes: nice scenery, but it rains all the time...It's the wettest place in Norway. And the people up there won't be a part of Norway. They describe England as "the little island just outside Bergen":D

@Kevin: Nice to meet you and Stacy:bannana: Greetings from Lillian to both of you :Beer:
The trip down south was beautiful, but the roads in X-DDR was too bad for our "low ride". Had a tail of other cars all the time - could only drive 40-50 km/h on the small roads....... and the limit was 100.....:( , but the scenery and villages were great.
