That was my dream car when I was in my 20s. I had a preppy streak in me back then, but it's a sweet set of wheels.

I am reminded of a joke:"For centuries, women have made use of certain mechanical devices to enhance their sexual pleasure. In recent decades, the Mercedes Benz SL has ranked highly among them."I think this was from a fake ad in National Lampoon from the early '70's, but I could be wrong.

There's one rotting on the street a couple of blocks from my house.
