As the world’s leading classic Mercedes-Benz SL specialist, it is our duty to inspire others to get out and enjoy these fantastic cars. We wanted to collect a variety of SL stories from around the world, so we put a call out on Instagram and Facebook asking our friends, customers and fans to submit their SL story:
My SL Adventure: Magnus from Norway
My 1993 R129 500SL is a dream! The quality, the style, the sound of its v8 and the overall feeling of the car never fails to put a smile on your face.
What I love about this car is that it gets attention from everyone and every generation. Everything from young kids shouting “ohh! Look at that cool car!” to their parents as well as from older folks who have come up and began conversations.
Let me tell you, that doesn’t happen often in Norway. I hear and see peoples positive reaction to the car every time I drive. It is the coolest car I could ever own at 18 years old. I am so happy to have experienced a car like this. I plan to own and enjoy it for a long time, but the fact that I forever get to say I have owned this car is simply amazing.
