really, thats amazing...The SL55 is very quick and very fast. I am sure you figured out, but Im 19 now. When I was 8-10 my dad and I did a frame off restoration of a 1965 Corvette. Its really nice, we drove it a lot when we finished it, but since we moved to arizona from california, we havent really driven it much. Its very fast for some reason, just a 327 small block and it can take pretty much anything. 0-60 in 4 seconds. I was at the porsche/land rover dealer in san diego with my brother we were about 11/12, and the sales man said this porsche is very fast, and we said how fast, he said 0-60 in six seconds, we said thats not fast. He walked over to my dad and said your boys think this porsche is slow, he said the same we said to the salesman, the next day at lunch, my dad took the salesman to lunch, and the salesman said to everyone, this porsche cant touch that vette. it was the first car I ever restored, since then I have done other cars, but that was my first. I will never forget it.
