Welcome to the forum from San Diego. Very cool that you ended up with Todd's old car. I really like the wheels you put on (sorry Todd :D).

Greetings from Tennessee !

You live in a great place for an SLK. Beautiful weather and lots of scenic curvy roads. There are also lots of SLK folks that live there. Keep checking back and I'm sure they'll have a get-together soon.

Welcome to the Forum.
