My favorite crab house along the lower Potomac River has reopened for the summer. It's a great hour drive through rural Maryland. I've been driving top down all winter, but this time there was no heater, no seat heater, and no coat. Good to be driving free of the Washington, DC, traffic amid that AMG sound.

Captain Billy's was as great as ever. For international members, a crab house is a rustic, often open-air seafood restaurant featuring crabs and shrimp steamed in "Old Bay" -- a mixture of spices that is about perfect. Add a cold drink, spring breezes, and birds circling over the water for a wonderful experience.

Out and about today.
Followed a couple of 595 Arbarth's with what looked like Monza exhausts. Really good with my lid down, popping and banging away🤪 in fact so much so I went to the Arbath dealer and arranged for one to go on my son's 595

Waved to a nice man in an Alfa with his roof down.
Think I'm going to wave to anybody with a roof down if mines down now.
'appy days!😇

Well what a fab day I had at Sports Cars in the Park yesterday. Held at Newby Hall near Ripon in North Yorkshire.

The weather held that well, that I have a little sunburn:cool:

There were around 1100 cars there, and alot of SLK's but from a different club.

This was probably one of the cars that most caught my eye, I know Kleeman superchargers were fitted to the 200 kompressor's but this is fitted to a 55! The owner was saying that he believes 6 were converted, 2 of those written off and he has never seen the other 3. Pushing out 500 bhp, 100 more than the AMG Black series.

I have made a video of the day so people can get a feel of the event. I will defo be participating again!

Yes, it is... Periklasgrün metallic (300) with Beige (874) interior.
It's this color combi I fell in love with... Love at first sight...
Straight from the ad on the Internet... I got goosebumps when I saw this SLK for the first time in Germany
And I still am in love with him 😍🥰 (Benzie is not a "she"...)


These two are from de ad on "mobile.de".

This is how Benzie is now, with chrome accents and new 18" Antracite/polished GMP Stellar wheels; 225/245 Goodyear tires.

That is a car to keep. Agree with the wheels, I went for the same ones but plain silver, with those Eagle tyres. They are excellent.

Hopefully this is the correct forum 🫣
I did get my top down today. My wife thinks at my age it’s not a good look, so I put my shirt back on before the drive 😹
