Service day

Apr 06, 2021,08:17 AM

Dropped the old girl off today for service. Purchased 16yrs ago when she was 3yrs old the Silver Arrow was the last of the R129 run. I can’t imagine I’ll ever get rid as I’m not one to change just for the sake of it and besides I absolutely prefer the 129 over the later model SL’s also never once did she let me down in all that time. A future classic I think : )

Thanks for looking ; )
