Thinking about a 560SL...

Good evening everyone,

I am considering purchasing a 1987 560sl. I currently own a 1996 Buick Park Avenue that I purchased new and here is my question: I love that my Buick has that big, smooth, luxury ride (even after 224,000 miles) and I've gotten spoiled with feeling that smooth ride, does a 560sl have a comparable feel to it? The 560 is considerably longer with a weight of approximately 3700 lbs, my Buick weighs about 200lbs less but does the shorter wheelbase on the 560 make that much of a difference in the ride? I plan to drive the 560 2-4 days a week and 95% highway miles. I plan on keeping my Buick but really want the 560 as a second driver or "toy" if you will. Any and all responses are appreciated.

Are you sure you don't mean the 560SEL?
