New to Mercedes-Benz

I just aquired a '96 SL500 Sport parade car from the US500. Would like to learn all I can about the car and MB in general. I am looking to preserve history here so not looking at any modifications to the car.

My background is Packard, Oldsmobile, and Saab. I live in Michigan.
