Hi Ernie --

Thanks for your reply -- I'd like to do that if your friend allows it.

I understand that you do not want to drive your car -- and if a collector had offered to buy such a car from me to keep in a collection (I assume that's why he wants it?) I would feel guilty about continuing to drive it.

Having said that, I think that if you can you should get a true replacement, that is a car that you would use in the manner that you intended to use the SL -- so the 94 SL would be the choice. Last night and this morning were the first time in 2 or 3 days when I could have the top down -- its such a great feeling! A feeling you never get in a solid top car.

I have an SUV for winter time and will leave the SL in the garage -- I think that is a nice combination.

If anyone else has any ideas about my fluttering noise, or what to look for if I can get the car on a dyno -- please chime in! Thanks
