2005-7 SLK350? There are 2 on autotrader in the $10-$11K range one with the 6spd. Maintenance isn’t unbearable on these, especially if it’s not a daily.

The same thing the Des Moines, Iowa PD was when they bought Zero electric motorcycles. They cost 4 times that of a Suzuki DR with a 10th the range. Just boosting public image, last I checked they never use them.

I had a 2003 Passat Wagon w/ the 1.8t and it was great right up to when it wasn’t, and it didn’t meet that cliff gently, it grabbed hold and Leeroy Jenkins’ed right over the edge. Read more

Damon Hill took a turn at Arrows after coming off of a title win at Williams, I mean it’s not unheard of for successful drivers to ‘slum’ it. Let’s be honest the ‘97 Hungarian GP when he was leading after passing Michael, you were cheering the shit out of Hill, everyone was :)

My (now) wife had a Metro convertible back in the day, we drove to Chicago to see a concert and driving that thing in Chicago traffic was just plain fear inducing. It can’t get out of it’s own shadow much less merge and maintain much over 60mph. I can’t imagine that the dualy conversion has done anything but make it’s Read more
