Newbie Intro

Hello Members.
A special thanks to the R-129 contributors!

I spent many hours researching the R-129 forum before
purchasing a 1998 Black/Tan 500SL with the AMG Sport Pkg.
It has 111,000 miles and been well maintained.

It was supposed to be my wife's car while she took her time
picking a replacement for the 2000 E320

Too bad my wife didn't like driving it.

She is now driving her New 2013 Cabriolet.
Lord, Bless that woman...
I offered to sell the 98 as we drove it to pick up the new Cabriolet.
She said "keep it until you find a white or red one"
....with a new ragtop installation scheduled for Monday...
I'm starting to love black.

#1 Son turns 16 in June. He will drive the 2000 E320
It has 123,000 miles and has had 4 minor fender benders.
If the E320 survives Son #1 my 12 year old gets his shot at it.

My daily driver is the Sequoia.
124,000 miles...#1 Son's college driver??

The 500SL is an absolute blast to drive!
