Hmmm...looking at the clouds of diesel exhaust mixed with the tire smoke made me think of the smoke and steam that used to roll from steam locomotives....

Because many MB owners are snobs. Check out some of the
forums to find them.

But never in a million years would I have figured that owners of old mercedes sedans would desperately want to do burnouts, race corvettes, and donuts. I also never figured people would put obnoxiously loud exhausts on mb sedans.

I guess since the resale on a lot of these cars is so bad, that they fall into the hands of young kids who think they bought the fastest thing in the world.

Im pretty disappointed with the crowd, especially on the "other" mb site. At least here you get some good diy stuff.

There are 6.3 and 6.9 owners who take their cars to the drag strip, 500E owners as well, 190E owners who swap engines and put turobs in or swap in a V8.

The reason we drive MB's is to impress ourselves not others.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
