MB not as solid as before?

Hi.

Everybody survived this.

It was only run over by a Leopard I tank.
So when someone says solid, I'm interested in the definition.

Try this with a Toyota.

Regards

Geir

That does not look like the work of a 40 ton tank.
Something else happened here.
That car would have been flattened on one side.

not necessarily true... When I was in Kuwait during Gulf War 1, I was a tank driver (M1A1) which weighed 72 tons... considerably more than the Leo I.. we ran over many a cars, including my memory serves a 1986 BMW 735 which also looked only about 1/2 crushed... we ended up driving over it about 10 times before we completely flattened it.

btw.. there were no people in these cars, we simply did it out of boredom.


ah.. those were the days!

'05 E320 CDI, mostly loaded
'05 XC90 AWD T6, fully loaded
