New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez will open a Mercedes-Benz dealership next year. Here is his history as a Mercedes-Benz customer, as told to Staff Reporter Gail Kachadourian.
First a buyer, now a seller
I bought it when I was 21, when I got my first contract with the Seattle Mariners.
I got a used 500SL convertible. I got a great deal on it from a small dealership in Seattle.
Probably about $65,000.
Black on black.
I own the 500S two-door, and I'm waiting for the new truck (the ML) to come out. My wife is expecting a child, so that's the perfect car for her.
