Cool SL500 owner retired in Sarasota

I am the second owner of a 1996 SL500 that I purchased 3/07 with 57,900 miles. I live in Sarasota (50 miles South of Tampa) and have the perfect weather for a droptop, unless it gets too hot. My rule is the top stays up until the temperature is 84 or below. I didn't put the hardtop on in 2010, but will next year for the 6 weeks that it is the hotest (2nd wk of Aug to 1st wk of Oct). I love my RED SL and enjoy driving it. I wish I got a little better than 17 MPG around town.
