My gal's not a "collectable" but I still love her.

Ok, I've read lots of posts that talk about the plethora of 450 SLs around the nation. Up here in the great white north, there are not as many, so may be less visible, but perhaps no more valuable than in SO CA. My aunt owned this 1978 SL for 25 years, and I'd been bugging her for many years and saying that if she ever wanted to sell it, to please think of me. And, voila, it happened. She phoned me out the blue and I drove up to her place and back to mine (about 500 Km away). We live in the B.C. lower mainland and she didn't pass Air Care the first time, but with some tweaking she has now. She (her name is Bobbie) is is pretty good condition so I'm going to apply for collector's plates. I joined this site to learn more about restoration, as in the future I plan to do a complete job, but for now, I think I'll try to find more about acquiring a new soft top which has a small rip in it and of course the common problem of aging plastic windows. So Cheers everyone.
