There is a long story behind the car.......that I can bore you to bits with at another meet up! Believe it or not I found it as a non runner under a sheet at a performance car dealer. We both knew what it is and it took weeks of negotiation with him to agree to sell it to us.....but I wore him down eventually!

We have had the car some while now, and its nearly at 19000 miles.


Mega car mate, really is a rare beast !

Did the engine fit ok or did you have to modify any of the subframe to get it in ? I know the SL55 engine has a different sump. Also how did you fair with the electronic management ?

Cheers,

Olly

I was also impressed with Philips

Kleeman car, what a sound from that exhaust.



Thanks for organising this one Col.

Excellent GP Breakfast too.

First meet and it looks like I picked a good one!

Great to meet you all, thanks for making me feel so welcome.

Only problem now is I realise I need to do some serious work on mine to make it look respectable.....and clean it before the next time

Also spotted far too many modifications I now crave - or go the whole hog and get a 55!

I think some of the people we passed on the M1 on the run up from LFE probably thought I was a little crazy. At one point several of the 55's in front of me opened them up at the same and the sound was gorgeous. I must have passed at least half a dozen cars laughing hysterically to myself

Saw 3 more SLK's on the run home as well but for some bizarre reason they all had their roofs up

Great meet @Col, thanks for organising it.

Really good to see so many old friends and meet some new faces. The brekkie was well worth the slight wait.

Got some excellent feedback on the 2018 Spring Tour ideas.

Was home by 18.00. 160 miles of top down enjoyment before the rain came on just north of Scotch Corner.

Thanks to @Col for organising another great meet... the Donington breakfasts are always good, but I couldn't believe how full the cafe was by the time I got there!!

Also, thanks to everyone that took and shared their photos... for once, I didn't take a single photo!
