Second day of ownership of a 1987 560SL with 78K, pristine condition. Bought it from an older couple who have had it serviced at a Merc' dealer it's entire life. Got it for way less than 10K. I've driven a 94' S320 for about a month before and just loved the build and road handling. But my experience for the last ten years has been strictly Fiats, owned 7 or 8 Spiders and X1/9's and still have one each that I will keep. But this little roadster is something entirely different. The build and feel is unlike any other car I've ever driven. I couldn't imagine going for a Japanese car, which I was tempted, for a similar price, there's just no comparison. The V8 is peppy and it has a growl to it. Midrange acceleration is great, body roll is not too pronounced. The overall experience is very comfortable and relaxed. Makes you want to take the long way home. It's a gawker, which is really the only downside. I have the hard top installed and it's quiet and isolated, acts just like a coupe. This is a fantastically well built and purposeful car. Solid, dependable, I'll keep this one.
