Dream came true a new R129 Owner

Ok, I was shopping around for my wife as she needed a more economical car. Happened upon a 2001 SL500 with 14,400 miles on it. The story was that a guy who had over 50 cars, had put it on consignment at the dealership.

I did some math and I got it for almost 70k less then the original price, and it is brand new with only 14k miles on it. I drive it down the road and I have to pinch myself, can't believe it.

When I was in college in the mid 90's I had a friend of mine that I met in Physics. He had a poster of the SL500 sitting on his wall in his room. We made a bet one day, who was going to be the first to own one?

I had forgotten about that bet until now. It is nice when dreams come true!

I just love convertibles!

Looking forward to being a part of this forum and hearing everyone else's experiences.
