S197 Mustang vs Benz 500 SL

So I was gassing up my jewel, getting ready for our vacation road trip, and this guy comes up to ask me how I like my new Mustang. He says he can buy a used Mercedes 500 SL but was considering a new Mustang. Wanted to know how I liked it and how much I paid and which would I choose. He said he didn't like the fact that the Benz was a 2 seater only.

Of course I told him I loved the car and it had a 300 hp aluminum SOHC V8 and etc. etc. and popped the hood and made him listen when I fired it up.

So, given the choice for approximately the same price, would you choose a Mercedes 500 SL ( I don't know what year, take your best guess) or a new Mustang GT?
