New Member Bruce Tews

Hello to all.
My name is Bruce Tews, and I recently purchased a 1986 560 SL from Specialty Sales in Benicia, California.

It is a wonderful, well maintained car. The color is Anthracite Gray with a beige interior. I replaced the original radio with a Kenwood radio which accepts USB flash memory, IPOD, or other MP3 player inputs. It sounds great, even with just the two front speakers.

I am 62 years old and live in Oroville, Ca, near Lake Oroville. For most of my working life I have been a Software Engineer. My interests include golf, tennis, food, and wine.

Thanks for accepting me as a new member.

Seeing that you folks are from over the 'pond', I appreciate your input. I am ignorant about bumper differences, but mine seem fine, and I love the car. One more picture for your enjoyment.
