East Coast Adventures

So, after sitting on pins and needles for the last two weeks, awaiting my 560SL's arrival, she arrived safe and sound last night. I took pictures with the trailer, but evidently the intended large parking lot would not take trucks. Thus the pictures did not turn out. Don't worry- I had a flashlight to inspect everything. No new dings

Here's to new adventures
This is us in front of my college's entrance, just in case you didn't believe me :-P

I'd have to ask my father, but they are 1986, just like the car.

If those wheels say AMG on them, make sure you at least have locking lugs there at college. Keep salt off the car as best as you can too.

We could tell you what the wheels are with close up pictures, but don't sweat it. If you have Pentas on a 1986, those are some rare wheels regardless of the brand.

Thank rowdie. You are like an elephant.

I didn't even know Robert and Pep were related. Is everyone "inMn" related ?
