Car looks great, black electrical tape on tags is crooked :-)

By the way, does your wife ever tell you that there is no more room in the driveway? I found the "offsite storage" a great way to fix that problem.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Suffice it to say, it was a very quiet evening this past Sunday when I came home and told her I purchased the car. I'm looking for a good off site area to store the cars, but the ones here in North Virginia are very expensive. I have three of the collection up for sale now to make more room.

Nice, nice, and since it's a "oh-no-single-chain-380SL" I bet a few jaws will drop over the price you paid for this beauty.

BTW, guys, that's not electrical tape, the pic was photoshopped. Not much use, though, the bumper shows a clear reflection of the tag -- now that's real chrome.

Congrats, powerpig, this one should be a keeper.

Thanks, I think this one is pretty much a keeper. Double timing chain has been done. Have all records and not much to do to it. It was well taken care of. The soft top looks like new. The other SL's I have may get jealous!
