I've wanted an SL for most of my life and I finally got one about six months ago: a 2001 white/tan SL500. I've been babying it, and yesterday it got smacked in a parking garage. I love hit & run drivers... Minor damage to the front bumper. But I've got an appointment already at a body shop, where I will also have repairs done from the previous owner scraping the front up on curbs. I guess it's a blessing in disguise because now I'm going to fix the only blemishes that are keeping it from looking new. Anyway, that's my story. I love my little tank.
