A couple of weeks ago I went to a Mercedes test drive event near DC. I drove the 05 SLK 350. It is fast and handles great also. Even though the 05 SLK is all new it made me want to go test drive a Crossfire. Tonight I drove a used 04. For the price the Crossfire I feel it is a nice sports car. The upcoming SRT6 with a supercharger will make it even better. If i had to replace my Firebird in the near future, the Crossfire is what I would replace it with.
