Hello from Bonita Springs, FL

I'm the new owner of an old MB, a 1988 560 SL. It was purchased locally, with 130,000 miles showing, but it is in excellent condition with well done fresh paint, new interior, new soft top, and some mechanicals redone by the previous owner(s). Aside from spending some $500 for a used hardtop and some cosmetic pieces, I think I really scored well purchasing this car. As a recent owner of a Jaguar E-type, the construction of this MB is refreshing to behold! I'm not afraid to drive it anywhere, it's comfortable, and I don't feel as if it will break down before I reach my destination. What a great feeling to have in a 23 year old car!
