Took my son driving round the local high school and rounding the corner to the lower parking area, I was blinded by a sea of silver.

There in the HS school parking lot were approx 250 brand new silver Mercedes Benz cars, including

100 M-B S400 Hybrids @$91,000 each
84 M-B GL350 4Matics @$30,000 each
50 M-B R350 @ $50,000 each

Perhaps $15 million in silver cars

All silver, all brand new, all on FL tags. I surmised that they are here for the PGA Championship as Official Cars for the golfers, guests etc.

The security guard was more than a little nervous as my son tried out his 3-point turn skills, for the first time, in a row of S400ís . He politely asked us to practice somewhere else.

All loosely guarded by a security guard?

At a wild guess, that may be the security guards car.

That still does not negate the fact that I would take that over one of those Mercedes. :tongue:

It's just dawned on me how similar to a DeLorean convention these pictures are.

Identical silver cars all parked in a row :)
