1999 Mercedes-Benz SL-ClassEnlarge Photo
Ray Horton, ex-secondary coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers and new defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals, did a pretty generous thing recently: he sold his 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL 500 to a long-time cafeteria worker that served the coaches and staff for just $20.
The car is worth closer to $17,000 on the open market, so even though it's almost 13 years old and has 64,000 miles on the clock, it's a rather generous parting gift from Horton. As for Maurice "Mo" Matthews, the worker that received the car, he can barely believe his luck.
According to ThePostGame, the transfer occurred as Horton stopped by the facility to say goodbye on his way out of town, headed to Arizona. Horton asked Matthews how much money he had on him, and when Matthews replied that he had $20, Horton said, "Sold for $20!" and promptly gave Matthews the keys.
Title and paperwork were handled the next morning.
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class recently made some news of its own, with the V-12-powered models quietly slipping from the sales roster as the 2013 redesign looms.
