RE: 500SL which is best?
Neighborhood of $20K. I am seeing them on ebay around 12-15-20K and some around 22,500 and they were over $100,000 when new! This is how it hits me, I suddenly decide I want something and within a few weeks I am driving it. Those 500SL's when all black and having 17 inch or 18 inch wheels all super clean and polished, are just too hot to resist. I can't wait to arrive at the BBQ in one!! So it's January and it's pouring down rain here in Seattle, that just gives me time. I found a 93 with 62K miles and way cool stereo and 18 inch wheels, the car just is too much- it belongs in my garage. But if I can get one just like it with around 75K miles for 12-15K then that's an even better deal. I might go for a 95 or 96 if the deal is right, I'd sure like to get lo miles and I really prefer black though. But who know- I don't have a crystal ball, I might find another one I fall in love with. We'll see! I do think I want the 5.0 engine and not a 3.8 or whatever else...[:)]
