Post Hello from New Zealand

This is an excellent site, thank you. When I lived in the UK I had a 220SE coupe 1965. It had 125K GB miles (a bit longer than US miles) when I got it and 155K miles when I sold it; fabulous car. I was only 19 and could not afford to run it. Fast forward to 1998 and a 300E estate diesel. That was new and a real workhorse, then came a 280SL 1989. Wonderful car! We now live in Auckland and I have just bought a 350SL 2003 (did you import them into the USA?). It has only 23K miles on the clock and is immaculate. Stupid car to have here as we only have a 62MPH (100Km) speed limit, and the police here are TOUGH, but I am tempted to put it on a race track for a whirl! It just makes you feel good to sit in it!
