Looks like the owner forgot to put top down before one of those heavy rain/hail storms hit while he/she was pouring money into a slot machine in one of those Sioux Falls casinos.

As a matter of curiosity, I have replied to the ad seeking information about what was once a magnificent automobile.

LOL...gotta love the last two words in the posting "GOOD CONDITION."

I have never seen a flood water damaged car before, but if I were to guess...I would say this is how it probably would look like inside.

Oh, by the way...this is an SL...not an S

Yeah, you're right lcmlee, it's a SL. I get confused a lot these days. I thought maybe it was a CL. What's the difference?

I did send, out of curiosity, a response to his/her ad, but have not yet received an answer. Probably never will.

I also checked to see if this ad appeared in the Sioux Falls Craigslist. Canton is about 40 miles from SF.

Was not posted there. Only posted in the Minneapolis list.

Weird to see a vehicle like this parked in a wheat field in South Dakota.

Something else: I noted about the odd rear wheel... I think that was the OEM wheel for that vehicle.

Dr. Atlas, surely you jest not knowing the difference between a S-Coupe and an SL Roadster.

How anyone could abuse a beautiful car like that is beyond words. 'Tis a shame, indeed!

(Chuckle)--yeah, I attribute this to a momentary lapse of memory. Either too much medication or not enough.

Fact is though, I have never seen a SL Roadster except in pictures.

I've got a lot of theories about what happened or could have happened to that car. If I ever hear from the seller, I'll post it.

Good to hear from you.
