This might be a tough one,,,,,

Im watching season 5 of Miami Vice on DVD. In the episode "Jack of all trades" there is a white two door Benz, AMG, convert, that appears during the episode.

It's NOT an SL. Anyone have this of can point me in the direction of what it might be? The year was 1989 if this is any help.

Looks to be a chopped 560SEC. There was a company in SoBe that did that back in the day for AMG North America [later RennTech]

^ Agreed, looks like an SEC to me...

Back in the 80s, you would occasionally see one of those - it's an SEC coupe that's been made into a convertible. ASC did a lot of them in the day. That one had the extra AMG stuff done to it was well - my guess AMG appearance stuff only.

On one episode of Miami Vice (the episode with Bruce Willis), in front of Bruce's house was a w124 Hammer sedan in white - sure looked like the real thing. I still want to know where that car is today - I want it.
