Out of hybernation...

So after a long cold winter, numerous blizzards etc... The 500sl has finally emerged out of the garage for another season. It spent the winter with the hardtop on, and I charged the battery once every 2 weeks with an old 10 amp Sears Crafstman charger my late father had purchased probably 25 years ago. It still works fine however....

So now that the weather finally cleared up, it's time for the 500sl to come out for the season. Hit the key and it started right up. No issue no nothing. And once I backed it out of the garage, the floor was completely dry. Not a drop of anything had leaked. Not bad for a 21 year old car!

So now there's much more to come for the year.... Next step will be to get the hardtop off. I acutally purchased a cart and cover to store it properly this season!
