Ken seems to do okay, despite his constant requests for donations to "keep him going"

Has anyone checked out his other website and seen what he drives?

http://www.kenrockwell.com/sl/sl600.htm

That article was posted 10 years ago.

So what?

So now he maybe driving Maybach like this one or a bicycle.

Edit: while looking at what he is driving now I found this

Unless it is written as a joke this guy is a hermit. I feel sorry for his wife and kids if he actually has any.

The guy is a joke. Sure his Mercedes cost $100,000 new and is now worth less than a new Camry.

But guess what? Repair parts and labor are still priced for a $100,000 car. I learned that the hard way. And there is so much to break down on a flagship Mercedes. The hydropneumatic suspension alone can cost more than the car is worth to repair.

There is a saying, "if you can't afford a new Mercedes, you REALLY can't afford an old one"

I can verify the truth of this from my own experience owning two R129 SL's over the years.

One last piece of advice which Ken forgot about, don't buy a 1994-7 Mercedes SL unless you can verify that the biodegradeable wiring harnesses in the engine have been replaced. I never had one of those years, but still had my share of expensive problems.
