Check out my new gallery ('80 450SL)

Well I've owned my roadster for about a month now and i have to admit how great this car really is.
Last year, I purchased a 1988 Corvette convertible and sold it three months later, nice car but nothing special. This car is something special!
I've received numerous compliments and when I lost my job yesterday (lousy rainy day), i felt like a million bucks in it today with the top down.
The replacement job is looking pretty good so i plan on keeping the car (had decided to sell her only if i had to). Anyway, here's a galley I threw together featuring my baby.

Have fun everyone!

Wallster, well done Sir. Nice car, I thought my 1988 560SL was nice but I see I have a few more detail items to go.

Thanks everybody. She's been repainted (Florida car, faded finish) but it was done before I bought it (not a perfect paint job but pretty darn nice). The dash is original as well. The only thing missing was the seat molding on the drivers side but i found one on ebay.
The seats are pretty faded but i think it gives it that 1980's charm. (had the wholesaler repair a tear in the seat with a new panel before i agreed to buy it.)
