So when are you going to get that SL that you have always wanted?


Great commercial. Timeless.

Fun ad to watch, but we see your avatar, calmate hijito, quit torturing yourself. Weren't you going to wait till the last kid graduates college before you get it ?

You'd look fine in a signal rot Pagoda Roof 113, no question about it. An SL is timeless.

Signal red or Tiffany blue (I know, not very macho, but a nice, classic color).

The currnet Mercedes Enthusiast magazine has an article on the V12 R129 SLs.

Broooooooooooommmmmmmmmm brooooooooooooommmmmmmm

Funny thing about the ads, they only show women driving the cars.

You guys either have super strong filters at work or you need some add-ons to see video files.

It is a nice little ad for the Benz SL class.

That is because many women considered them fashion accessories more than cars. Mercedes Benz simply recognized that market and is selling to it.

I vividly recall a divorcee who married a Judge up here, and he bought her a brand new black 560SL. In 10 months she divorced him but kept the SL.

I though Etta was singing At Last on a Cadillac commercial. Did they use that on a Benz commercial, too? I love that song.
