Smile A Benz for a beach (once mentioned).

Excuse me, but only a true Mercedes fan would appreciate that one on a BMW forum , I believe. On behalf of the rest I would expect to see this one, obviously.

Love it!! My parents had the same exact model and year back in 2001 (different color). It was so much sportier than the E Class sedan (they had a 2001 E430 as well at the same time).

WOW love it. Personally I never found red to work on Mercs (besides the R129) but your car pulls it off. I'm a sucker for the chrome wheels from Mercs of this era.

One of my buddies had this car in that terrible blue/purple color. Seeing examples in black or silver were always a treat.

Edit: I meant R107.

That was hot car back in the day.
The big body CL55 AMG from that time is still on of my favorite designs.

Nice CLK.

I saw a latest model CL600 on the road earlier this week. The Benz coupes are great.

Wow, in great condition, sadly the only ones I see now have rusted out and their paint has faded, not to mention the wheels are also swapped for chrome spinners, its refreshing to see an older Merc that hasn't been messed with and in a pretty rare color (at least for Mercs that is).

I had a silver 2000 CLK430 Cabriolet. Drove from Michigan down to Cape Hatteras NC. Boy she was thirsty for such a small V8!
