What's the most interesting thing you have been "gifted" when...

    Most unexpected MB you've seen at the dealer

    Called into the dealer at 0800 this morning. The first bay in the workshop had a lovely looking silver 190SL on the ramps. Beautiful looking car, and not at all what I was expecting to see early on a washed out grey morning. Apparently a locally owned car that still visits the dealership...
