I finally bought my dream car.

1998 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible


Words can't express the thrill I get every time I get into this car.
I'm just 32 and I've loved the r129 SL500 since I first saw it as a kid.
I looked all over the US and about booked a flight to Texas to buy a car when a buddy of mine called to let me know his dad just bought a low mileage car for his lot.
I drove down to his lot and saw my 98 Mercedes SL500 sitting there with only 46,000 on the clock.
I test drove it then went to lunch came back and paid for it.
We have put 7,000 miles on it in just two months.
I love the feel, touch and power of this amazing cruiser.
I even don't mind the fuel costs I'm getting about 17city and our trip to Florida we were able to get 25.4.
