Happy birthday to the car in 3 more days

Well its almost the 120th anniversary of when Karl benz patented the car, which i think we can all say changed the world forever. So how are you going to celebrate you cars birthday. I hope google makes a special home page for the car like they did for Mozart's 250th anniversary today.



The automobile celebrates its 120th birthday on January 29, 2006, the anniversary of the date in 1886 on which Karl Benz applied for a patent for his motorized vehicle. With the German Reich Patent No. 37435a

hmm. I think i will drive my w140 around a lot on that day...

I guess that is sorta a celebration, considering that i normally drive my w126 around everywhere.

i too hope google makes a intro screen for that.

My cars:

BLACK 1996 S500 (W140) - Sold

BURGUNDY 1989 560 SEL (W126) - Sold

It's funny how many think that Henry Ford invented the automobile. All he did was invent the assembly line!

I know! I get so freakin' mad at times. Especially in schools, they somehow get the kids to think that Henry Ford invented the car.

That's why I created a thread title "Why doesn't Karl Benz ever get credit?" And Marco Allen Benz responded to the thread too! What an honor!
