Who doesn’t love a good story about “stickin it to the man,” right? Unless you are the man, in which case you’ll have loads of money to cry yourself to sleep with…anyway, I can’t think of a better way to “stick it to the man” than to buy something for $10k that he paid almost $100k for when new!

Looks like the owner has perfected the Florida-Certified Pull-In Parking Technique, wherein the driver continues forward progress until just before the scraping sound stops, indicating that the tires have nearly self-chocked on the concrete parking block…and the lower air dam is now in need of surgery.
These were the last good looking SL in my opinion. Blocky and formidable.
