'78 450 SL-C
So, a little about my baby. . .The first car I had ever rode in was a Mercedes, and my earliest memory is of looking out the windshield of my fathers MB sedan at the prominent grill star. I have always loved the W107 since I was a young child. I always thought of them as the epitome in classic Mercedes styling, and quite beautiful at that.
Fate had it in the cards for me on 06.10.2003, I was looking for a car to replace the one I was driving at the time and I went to the local Mercedes dealer (MB Ft. Lauderdale) to look at their used car selection. I could always picture myself commanding a V8 W140 over the open road, so naturally that would be the first car I would look to purchase. On that evening, they had a few W140's however none met my tastes. On the lot was what would become mine. It was love at first sight. I looked at a few other cars at another dealership that night, however I could not get the image of the SLC out of my head, I knew I had to have it. The next day on my lunch break, I went to test drive her, she was a little different than what I was used to, I was driving a Mitsubishi eclipse (yeah, I know. . what was I thinking) and I knew that I had found my car. I went to the dealer the next day to sign the papers and finalize the transaction then leave for Orlando, where I would spend the next week.
One week later, I came back to Ft. Lauderdale and awoke early to be the first customer at the dealership to take delivery of what would become a lifetime love affair with a piece of German automotive history.
I have been through a lot with her. I am the second owner, and as I came to find out, she was sold at what was Mercedes Benz of Ft. Lauderdale back in the '70's

aroohk Nice SLC, I love the 'vintage' phone antenna on the back window. When I got my 86 300SDL, I found bits and pieces of old cell phone wiring throughout 11-26-2007
