New kid on the block

Just bought the wife a new car. At least new to us. Picked up a 1988 560SL with only 83K miles. This is our first MB. We have been loyal Volvo owners for years. Went looking for a convertable and couldn't pass up the SL. At least one thing hasn't change. We still don't own a front wheel drive! Having a blast with the "vulgar V8". Not too bad on the milage at this point we are averaging 23 mpg but we do live in the country and all our driving is highway.

Other cars 1964 Volvo P1800 Red 1964, Volvo P1800 White, 1974 Volvo 142, 1974 Ford F100 (farm truck), 1991 Volvo 940 Turbo and 1998 Volvo V90 Wagon.
