I can't believe I read this on a car enthusiast forum.
'Oh my god, my W124 could have links to the nazis.'
We come here to discuss our cars and how to get the most from them.
Not to feel guilty for owning one.

Why should you feel guilty, the Nazis were second world war, it is now 2011 and we are at peace with Germany.

Believe me I don't.
It's a fine automobile that I get enjoyment from driving.
The German engineers at Mercedes Benz should be proud of the cars they build.

Cool True...

While visiting a camp last year I noticed all the youth and asked and was told that now, all high school students in germany are required to visit and report on two camps before they can graduate.

Maybe we should require that of american youth.

Well... forced camp attendance doesn't sound right. Growing up in communistic Poland I was forced to take military rifle shooting lessons on High School level.
Don't think I would advise that in US.
