My "Barn" Find SLK2003

May be posting in wrong section or might not be of interest to anyone! My wife and I retired and moved into a townhouse after 47 years of marriage. A couple of weeks after we moved into our new home the lady from next door asked me if I could help her start her auto so she could get it serviced. I said ok and to her garage we went. where we found a 2003 Slk320. I jumped started the car and got to talking to the lady. She said the car had been willed to her about 5 or 6 years earlier. 20,190 miles on it. she said she had no use for it but ever so often she would take it to the MB dealer and have the radio code set and a general service. I told her if she ever wanted sell it to let me know. My wife and I are and have been Jaguar fans for many many years and have never owned a MB. About two weeks later she told me if I wanted it $11,000.00 or make offer. I paid her the asking price at that time and have been enjoying the auto for about 6 months now. I have a Jaguar and Harley Davidson along with a BMW RS1150 Motorcycle we also own a chevy pickup... I am going to get rid of motorcyles and pickup.. Just venting and I love the SLK may up grade to a new one this year or next.. .

Great little roadsters, I hope you and your wife continue to enjoy it! BTW, what Jag do you have? I've had a couple, somewhat obsessed despite my better judgment.
