Cap'n.......for the $$$ try to find a 90's 300-320SL...that's been well cared for, and you will be $$$ ahead, and own something you will be proud of for years to come. The inline six is nice, easy to maintain, and kicks butt when needed.
It may be hard to find, just keep looking. I think you will be happy with this car, it just seems like the best deal to me.
