Prospective 560 SL Owner

I'm JBA and she's LNS. We've just moved to the Maine waterfront after a decade or so in Asia.

We've decided the car we want is a Mercedes SL. She says, "You can just drive them into the ground." My philosophy is that if you maintain them, they'll run reliably forever. In any case, having researched models a bit, I've concluded that the 560 SL is the one, and I know of a good example for sale from a reliable source for a reasonable price. Just need to get an idea of running costs before taking the plunge. Keeping it a secret from her because I want to surprise her.

Been lurking on the R107 forum and have learned quite a bit and had fun in the process. Great forum! Glad to be here.
