I was excited when I bought this beauty and am still excited almost 20 years later. She is still gorgeous, rides great, looks fabulous and I just can not part with her. My siblings make fun of me for keeping a car so long, but I truly can not help it. The engine hums like a baby and you don't even know it's on when you come to a stoplight. Power? She can beat them all, but I am one of those "slow" drivers anyway, so it doesn't matter. She sticks to the road around turns and sometimes when I am in my pickup, I forget that the pickup can't take the turns like the 3000GT can. Whoops! It was a midlife crisis thing when I bought her, and now, at 64, I am still in the midst of the crisis.
The SL is great. This is a fun car, fast, great handling, good looking, and I can not find a replacement that is under $50,000. I only had 2 Problems at 10,000 miles a computer glitch. and at 105,000 miles a leak in the water pump. After 11 years I still love it.
I bought this car for myself 3 yrs. ago when I was a 45 yr old. Some say I was having a male mid life crisis. But if you ever drive one of these you will fall in love with it too. I feel the 91 year was the best year for these cars. It is now 2007 and the styling of 1991 still works today. I especially like the flip up head lights that later models don't have. I am 6'2" tall and I have no problem fitting in this car. There is power everything. The gauge cluster setup is spectacular and easy to read. Handling and braking are excellent. The only problem I have encountered in 3 yrs. of ownership occured last Thursday. My 18 yr. old daughter totaled it out. She rear-ended a stopped vehicle at 60 mph.
This is my first sports car. It handles like a dream and responds to the slightest movement of the steering wheel. I like the pick up the car has. It is quick. Some refer to it as a poor man's Viper. The only problem I have with it, is that the suspension isn't the best, it's a little rough at times. I feel this car is a comfortable ride maybe a little to much, I wouldn't recommend driving it if you are tired. Mine tops out at 135 mph. but then again it does have a lot of miles on it. Getting in and out of it is a little rough but not anything I would gripe about.
