Now would you guys go and burn your own Benz's because they were made in Germany?! [:0] I think not! So why would you want to destroy a priceless piece of history?

'83SD with 340,500 miles and a crapped out tranny!

There is absolutly no point in burning history remains, being Jewish or not.

First, this truck would have been a much better target for destroying PRIOR to may, 8th. 1945.

Second, if you destroy the truck now, what examples would you leave for your sons and daughters to understand how the nazis diverted (and in some cases, promoted) the power and genuis of the german economy for their horrible purposes.

Many of the elderly Jewish people I know, who made it wealthy in north america after WWII, some of them barely escaping the camps or persecution, starvation, etc. drive Mercedes ?

Why would they ? I think there are two reasons :

1) The quality of the car themselves and the long term economy which anyone can see, especially elderly people who know the "cost of money".

2) Prior to 1930 the Jewish were a very dynamic and liberal community in germany, putting up front high rank scientists, strong indutrial figures, showbizness "nouveau riches", etc etc. If they have been betrayed and slaughtered by the nazis, it doesn't mean they have never been german. At some point.



Burning a truck will not change history.

I was just thinking that erasing history is a good way to have people forget it. Do Jews (or anyone else for that matter) actually want that past forgotten? Christ, we're having a tough enough time getting people to remember what happened in the past decade.

Revisionism and denial are only for fools.

Dear Markcedes,

Ever since I was a young kid I've always been confronted with the most sordid details of the WWII.

And the most inspiring stories too.

GOD let us drive our Mercedes in peace ! it's all I ask.

I do think the price was outlandish! 5.6M? An Me109 wouldn't fetch that! That car would be lucky to clear 1M at Sotheby's, never mind ebay.

Felicita e un bicchiere di vino con un panino.

They should start the bidding at one dollar and see what they can get. Rare does not always mean worth. How much are mint AMC Gremlins and Pacers going for?

I would say no more than 500K if some museum wants it. They might be better off donating it and taking the tax write-off.
