Just wanted to say hi and meet everyone on this forum.

Just became the custodian of my "New" 560SL

Wonderful car and had a blast the first weekend of driving.

Learning more about the model and some of the things on mine that need attention - namely steering noise (Probably the coupler??) & a small dent on the rear passenger fender

I think She looks great and seems to be a good example overall. But not an expert

Hoping to learn more here and help and be helped in the years to come.

Welcome to the forum. You will love the car and at time hate the car.

Welcome to the forum. Your car looks very nice as posted. Pictures always welcome. As a newbie myself, I would like to recommend the search function which will provide detailed information on most any matter related to your 107.

Welcome to the forum. You already realize that by being the cars 'custodian' that it probably owns you. Good luck with what looks like a nice car. There's lots of knowledge here on the 107 forum, so enjoy both your car and the forum!

Welcome. Nice car. If you'd like to connect with some other 107 owners locally please feel free to pm me and we can exchange contact information. We try to get together on Sunday mornings at the Starbucks on Memorial and Dairy Ashford if you'd like to meet up.

One of these days, I'll bring my 560SL to Houston, both to show family and because I want to see how it does on a real long trip.

"Engineered like no other car in the world." That's both a bug and a feature.
