Greetings, I'm Don. I just sold my 1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 (twin turbo, all-wheel drive, all-wheel steering) with 200,000 miles and purchased a 1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 with 75,000. This is my 4th Benz (1975 240D, 1987 560SEC that are gone) and I currently own (and my wife drives) a 2004 CLK 500. My daily driver is a 1996 Acura 3.5 RL. Cars in my past are a 1969 Triumph GT-6+, a 1971 240Z, a 1971 Porsche 914, a 1969 Porsche 912, and 1973 Porsche 911T (with triple throated webers and a RS engine), a 1979 Porsche 928, a 1979 Porsche 930 and a 1989 Porsche 944. I live just outside Dallas. I play golf, play guitar and have played in rock bands since 12 (total of 43 years, so that makes me 55). I work in the power business, have a beautiful wife and a couple of kids that are grown. So far, I love the SL. It has a quirk that I will question about, but nothing that kept me from pay just shy of $9K. I glad that BenzWorld is here and hope to be a contributing member.
