Also tempted by the thought of a Rover R8 cabriolet. Which is, frankly, worrying.

 

What next, late-model Escort floppytop?

If you've got the opportunity I'd stash the Slk away under a cover for another day. You've invested a lot of time on it, currently their at their lowest level price wise and genuinely nice ones are becoming few and far between. By all means get a more practical cabrio.. sell the Twingo if needs be.. but reading between the lines I think that if you did get rid of the Slk you might regret it more than you currently think you would.

I'll second that. You just know as soon as you sell it prices will start to appreciate big time....

Having just bought a nice example of the much derided w203 I have to say mercs of this era are still nicely engineered

Maybe - I hate it sitting unused but it doesn't appear to have deteriorated.

 

Twingo won't be for sale though - I've seen how rough some of these are, my repairs look good - I have a small list of things I'd like to fix in summer when I can maybe take my Fiat or the Twingo to France and pick up some parts.

 

Biggest job is for the smallest parts and I've been really dragging my feet over it - replacing the plastic sunroof guides.

Yes. Grey, or nightfire, or amranth, or green and cream seats. Wasn't there one with red seats for sale here not that long ago? Been absent long enough to have missed quite a lot, I suspect.

That is the ex-Kiltox, now six-cylinder example above. Was going to have it as my first car actually, but it sold before I could get to it, then somehow Mr Cylinder got hold of it after I acquired a broken R8 with a roof.

I have a hankering for a roofless one, hence the 2 tickets I have in doubleyeller's roffle for a white one with grey leather.

House move means... remarkably.., bye bye SLK.

 

It's been an interesting six years.

Need to get it MoTd again - but form an orderly queue I guess. If anyone's interested.

Ah man youre joking. Ive been waiting patiently for this to come up and even messaged you on Instagram trying to buy it.

Sadly, Ive just this week now bought a car or I would ne booking a train ticket down to collect this.

Gutted.

Top grammar tips!

Bought = purchased. Brought = relocated
Lose = misplace/opposite of win. Loose = your mum

I've been off social media (largely) - all of the stuff that leads to renting somewhere new in a civilised* area and so forth...

* really isn't. But needs, and budget, must. Can't afford Catherine-de-Barnes or whatever it's called.

Price-wise, £2250 is the ideal, but let's see how everything is lying when I MoT it. The front wings have held up exactly as I got it, at least!
